Forward Flag utilizes the QPR Institute (established 1999, Spokane, WA; Dr. Paul Quinnett) in providing educational training to our communities. The QPR mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. The signs of crisis are all around us. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.
The Mission of the QPR Institute as Provided by Forward Flag is to:
All Courses are:
As of this writing in early 2015, thousands of clinical health care providers have been trained in how to detect, assess, manage, and treat suicidal consumers, and nearly 2 million people have been trained to recognize and refer persons who may be at risk of suicide. If this sounds like an "army" of people helping to prevent suicide, it is. Now, with your help, we will create a new division in that army of educated, trained gatekeepers to help prevent suicide among our veterans and within our communities.

QPR Gatekeeper Training
Clear ... Concise ... Efficient. Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. QPR is the most widely taught Gatekeeper training in the world.

These situations are unique, with special groups and stressors, which require special care and training tailored to the profession.
