Suicide Prevention Training


Please note that we are currently unable to offer QPR. While we work on shifting the QPR curriculum online, we are excited to introduce you to the wonderful and engaging online training offered by international leaders in suicide prevention and intervention training; LivingWorks.

Now, more than ever suicide prevention skills are essential for providing care to one another. As many people struggle with stress and anxiety during the COVID-19 crisis our team has been working to find a solution to fill this need and assist our community members (you) in acquiring these skills.  

LivingWorks training teaches faculty, staff, and students the skills to recognize and support people who may be having thoughts of suicide. This training provides campus individuals with essential skills to prevent suicide. Through this training our campus community will become stronger and more able to help provide support to one another.

Having received training from LivingWorks ourselves, we highly recommend this training for those looking to learn more about suicide, how to approach the topic, and how support those whom they suspect are contemplating taking their own lives.

The great thing about the training is that it can be completed on your laptop, phone or tablet, you can leave and come back to it at any time, and it takes approximately the same amount of time as attending our in-person QPR sessions.  Additionally, there are a number of practice scenarios for you to hone your skills.  

We are working with the City of Edmonton to provide the training for free to our community members. If you are interested in registering for LivingWorks, please use this link. It will lead you to the City of Edmonton Registration information.

You can take LivingWorks’ training asynchronously any time. Our team is happy to offer additional support through a follow up session which will provide you with more information and contextualize the training to our campus community.
