Gatekeeper Training
Gatekeeper training is for anyone who comes in contact with youth. This training contains basic information about suicide, how to spot someone at risk and what to do or say. The training model endorsed by the Nebraska State Suicide Prevention Coalition for use in Nebraska is QPR (c) (Question, Persuade and Refer). Qualified trainers are available across the state and are ready to present to your group. The presentation is about an hour and a half and is appropriate for all group sizes. To schedule a training for your group please click on the map below to see the contacts in your behavioral health region who can connect you to a QPR trainer. Then feel free to contact the trainer directly to schedule your training event. Once QPR is scheduled for your group, each participant will be asked to complete a simple questionnaire before and after your training experience to let us know how helpful the training is.

Click on the area of the state you live in to get contact information for the suicide prevention coordinators in your Region.
