SUCAP’s QPR trainer Harlene Russell trained her 400th suicide prevention gatekeeper. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer. Like CPR, it is designed to save lives. QPR teaches people in all walks of life how to recognize direct and indirect signs of suicide risk. Recent QPR trainings have been held for employees and family members at Red Willow Production Co., the Fort Lewis College WELPAC health promotion volunteer group, Ignacio Community Church, and a combined group from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Durango and the La Plata County atheist and skeptics group.
