Suicide Prevention Training & Resources

At Northwestern, we hope all members of our community will know how to recognize and respond to others who are considering suicide. Although suicide is one of the most preventable forms of death, it is the second leading cause of death among college students. In many cases, people struggling with suicidal thoughts communicate clues to someone personally close to them, such as a friend, family member, colleague, faculty or staff member.

Oftentimes, they have not reached out for professional help themselves. You are in a position to assist them in getting the help they need. Attend the QPR Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training Program to learn how to recognize signs for suicide and how to intervene to save a life.

Help strengthen our safety net for students in distress. Learn how to recognize signs of suicide and how to ask a question about potential suicidal thoughts, persuade someone to get help, and connect them to appropriate resources. QPR is not therapy or a crisis service.
