About the Event

51% of suicide deaths are related to use of firearms.

Research suggests that putting space and time between an individ-ual in suicidal crisis and lethal means can save lives. Therefore, re-moving access to lethal means during a suicidal crisis is key in suicide prevention.

However, the conversation on removing and safe storage can often be a difficult one to have.

In this CALM Training, participants will learn:

  • How CALM can help to prevent suicides
  • Why it is important to focus on firearms
  • How to talk to individuals/families about firearms
  • How to talk to individuals/families about other suicide methods
  • Review case studies and practice having the conversation
