Training the Trainers
Tech Ends Suicide Together trained 15 new Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) trainers last week. This cohort of students, faculty, and staff attended an all-day training session to be certified to teach QPR workshops. QPR is the most widely taught gatekeeper training in the world and is designed to help participants recognize the warning signs of suicide, intervene with individuals at-risk, persuade them to get help, and guide them to the appropriate resources. Additional workshops will be taught throughout the academic year. Find upcoming dates and register at endsuicide.gatech.edu.
