More than 250 Columbus State community members trained in suicide prevention

In 2016, the Suicide Prevention Taskforce brought QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) Gatekeeper trainings to Columbus State to help community members learn about their role in suicide prevention. Since then, more than 250 employees and students from over 20 departments have been trained as QPR Gatekeepers.

If you want to learn more about preventing suicide, you can sign up for the next training on Monday, November 6 on the Hub. Registration is not required, but is appreciated. QPR is offered monthly and is open for all students and employees to attend. If you are interested in bringing a suicide prevention training to your department or student organization, please contact Ameena Kemavor at
