NFSHW23: Conversations on Access to Lethal Means (CALM) Training

September 22, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

Last updated on September 25th, 2023 at 09:48 am

Summary: CALM (Conversations on Access to Lethal Means) is a suicide prevention training that encourages safe storage of lethal means (firearms and medications) during a suicidal crisis. By temporarily putting time and distance between a suicidal person and highly lethal means, a life may be saved. CALM: Counseling on Access to Lethal Means was originally created as a workshop designed for mental health professionals.

Conversations on Access to Lethal Means was developed for communities because everyone can benefit from this training . This training is not anti-gun or anti-drug and is designed to be a specific effective part of suicide prevention.

Intended Audience: All communities of interest in suicide prevention

Objectives: At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to…

  1. Increase their knowledge about suicide facts
  2. Learn how to inquire about the accessibility of lethal means
  3. Learn how to suggest safe storage
  4. Appraise results of lethal means reduction in countries outside the U.S.
  5. Practice their new skills through group discussion
