Description:

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24 in New Hampshire and the tenth cause of death for those of all ages. We know that many attempters are as ambivalent about suicide as they are about life.  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. The workshop includes: PowerPoint presentations regarding why CALM is important, a model videotaped counseling session, plus time for discussion and role plays. CALM is recognized on the SPRC/AFSP Best Practice Registry, Section III.
