Question, Persuade, and Refer (QPR) Suicide Awareness and Prevention Training

QPR is a two-hour suicide awareness and prevention gatekeeper training for students, faculty, and staff. Every member of the SMC community is invited to complete the training and become a QPR Gatekeeper. Gatekeepers are trained to identify the warning signs of suicide and refer the potentially suicidal person to the appropriate resources, including CAPS.

Our goal is to train 20 percent of the SMC community in QPR. Trainings are offered throughout the year and at the request of specific departments and organizations. Please check the calendar for upcoming trainings. If you'd like to sign up, contact Cynthia Cutshall at 631-4364 or cac13@stmarys-ca.edu
