Counseling on Access to Lethal Means
This 90-120 minute training program is open to anyone. It focuses on steps we can all take to help prevent suicide attempts via firearms, medications and poisons, and through other means. The program includes a presentation, videotaped counseling session, and discussion and/or role-playing exercises.
In 60-90 minutes, any individual can learn to recognize the warning signs of suicide and how to apply three simple steps that may save a life. The training includes myths and facts about suicide, warning signs, and how to ask the right questions and persuade suicidal individuals to get help.
