Join us for a special presentation by Scott Campbell & Brian McCallum, and learn how you can become a QPR Gatekeeper.

Our Instructors:
Scott Campbell, ACSW, LCSW, is Clinical Director of Samaritan Counseling and provides consulting to schools, businesses, churches and nonprofits. Scott has more than 45 years of experience in the field of mental health.

Brian McCallum, LCPC, serves as Intake Coordinator and Staff Counselor at Samaritan Counseling. Brian has experience in suicide intervention, prevention, and postvention, including answering phone calls for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK).

What is a QPR Gatekeeper?
A QPR Gatekeeper is anyone in a position to recognize the warning signs of someone who might be contemplating suicide. This QPR presentation will teach you simple suicide prevention techniques. Much like CPR or the Heimlich maneuver, the use of QPR may save a life.
