Trainings and Education

We offer suicide prevention, lethal means safety, and a series of domestic violence prevention trainings. These trainings are ideal for direct service providers, paraprofessionals, firearm owners and the general community. Trainings are available on a rotating schedule and upon request, both virtually and in-person.

QPRlogoQuestion-Persuade-Refer training is ideal for anyone who is a gatekeeper for those at-risk of suicide. QPR is designed to increase one’s ability to recognize suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and to refer the person who is at-risk to a professional resource. Classes range from one-hour to all day, and are free of charge. QPR is a dynamic curriculum that can be adapted to meet the unique needs of any group or organization.

ASISTApplied Suicide Intervention Skills Training is a 14-hour course which provides similar training to QPR, but goes more in-depth and provides skills training in suicide intervention. This course is ideal for caregivers who have a greater likelihood of encountering a person at-risk for suicide (counselors, clergy, law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical services, etc.) There is a fee for this course. Please call for cost.
