Stephanie Gimeno will present QPR Gatekeeper Training
“QPR” stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer – the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.
Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn the skills in steps to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. The skills acquired through this training equip an individual for appropriately handling an emergency mental health intervention.
This program is part of the Pennsylvania Library Association PA Forward initiative.
