Suicide Prevention Programs

MMA and its Foundation Offer Suicide Prevention Training

The MMA Foundation offers MMA members physician-led training on two evidence-based suicide training programs.  These are available at no charge for MMA members.

Question-Persuade-Refer Gatekeeper Trainer Certification

Question-Persuade-Refer (QPR) Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training is designed to prepare physicians to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis, and to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.   

Counseling on Access to Lethal Means Trainer Certification

Counseling on Access to Lethal Means (CALM) is designed to provide counseling strategies to help patients at risk for suicide and their families reduce access to lethal means, particularly (but not exclusively) firearms.

For more information on the QPR or CALM training, contact Kristen Gloege
