Suicide Prevention

If you or someone you know is in crisis, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or to text “Talk” to 741741.

EPIC provides Question, Persuade Refer (QPR) Gatekeeper Training. Gatekeepers are those citizens in every community who, because of their contact with those at risk for suicide, are often in the best position to identify and refer people thinking about suicide. QPR Gatekeeper Training does not train people to be counselors, it trains people to detect persons who are in the thinking or ideational phase of a suicide plan. EPIC can provide training to any interested group in the community. For more information on QPR Training, please contact teresa@epicbh.org.
