There is also an in-person training scheduled for Thursday, November 9, 10:00-11:30 am at the Van Buren Intermediate School District Administration Building / Van Buren Conference Center in Lawrence. Both training events are free.

QPR is a nationally recognized, evidence-based gatekeeper training. Gatekeeper trainings teach participants how to recognize suicidal language (which is often indirectly stated), appropriately respond to the person, and take the next step to help the person. To register, please click this link.
