December 31, 2019 —
Need a New Year's resolution? Take AVMA's QPR training to learn how to identify and refer at-risk colleagues, and put yourself in a position to help others!
QPR training, also known as gatekeeper training, teaches people without professional mental health backgrounds to recognize the signs that someone may be considering suicide and guide the person to seek professional help. Because of the importance of mental wellbeing in the veterinary profession, the AVMA is providing gatekeeper training to a limited number of veterinarians and veterinary students. QPR training is free for AVMA and SAVMA members. Learn more about AVMA's gatekeeper training to identify and refer at-risk colleagues.
