QPR Gatekeeper Training: “QPR" stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. People trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone for help. We would like Buffalo State to be community of UPstanders as opposed to bystanders. It is a myth that asking if a vulnerable person is considering suicide gives that person the idea. Instead, it lowers anxiety, opens up communication and lowers risk of an impulsive act. The goal is not to be a counselor, but to listen and then know where to refer the struggling person for professional help. Help is always available 24 hours by calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255). We can create a safety net for our community by listening non-judgmentally, instilling hope, and giving a referral for help. If you would like to attend the QPR session, please RSVP at 878-4436. See schedule below.
