Multipurpose Room A-C
The QPR Suicide Gatekeeper Training is for caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Just as "CPR" skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills needed for suicide first aid. QPR is a 2-hour training designed to help caregivers recognize risk and learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.
Upon successful completion of the 2 hour workshop, the participants will be able to:
Understand that the focus of this workshop is suicide first aid
2. Describe the need for caregivers to be able to do suicide first aid interventions
3. Understand the scope of suicide in the U.S. and Miami-Dade County
4. Understand the warning signs that can identify a person to be at risk of suicide
