Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training


QPR (Question Persuade Refer)

QPR offers a traditional approach to understanding the impact and prevalence of suicide as well at the intervention tools. This training prepares participants to recognize the warnings signs, know what to say to someone who might be at risk for suicide and where to refer individuals for help. (Duration: 2 hrs)

Campus Connect

Campus Connect is an interactive training providing participants opportunities to enhance their knowledge, awareness, and skills concerning college student suicide. This training focuses on increasing gatekeepers’ knowledge about students in a suicidal crisis, developing empathic listening and communication skills, and how to compassionately and directly ask students about their suicidal thoughts. This training is specifically for college students. (Duration: 2.5 hrs)

Gatekeeper 2.0

Gatekeeper 2.0 offers participants who have already taken QPR or Campus Connect a chance to refresh their skills and reflect on the challenges of talking about suicide. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss if/how they have used their previous training in a confidential environment. Additionally participants will gain confidence through additional practice and a deeper dive into information about suicide and counseling. (Duration: 1.5 hrs)

Request a facilitator come to you to provide training for your department/organization or register individually for an open session gatekeeper training at White Creek. You do not need any previous mental health experience and all trainings are free to Texas A&M faculty, students and staff.
