CALM Workshop (Counseling on Access to Lethal Means)

August 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Capital Area Public Health Network

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 44 in New Hampshire and the eighth leading cause for those of all ages. We know that many attempters are as ambivalent about suicide as they are about life. Preventing these suicides is a very complex puzzle that requires all of us to work collaboratively to complete the picture. One piece of that puzzle that has proven to be effective is to reduce access to lethal means – particularly firearms and medications. This workshop addresses why and how to do this, focusing on the steps below. The workshop includes: PowerPoint presentations regarding why CALM is important, a model videotaped counseling session, plus time for discussion.
