CALM: Counseling on Access to Lethal Means

Reducing one’s access to lethal means is an important factor in preventing suicide. Visit the Harvard School of Public Health’s website at www.hsph.harvard.edu to learn more about their “Means Matters” program. The website contains educational information about reducing access to lethal means. CALM workshops are being offered in various states. In the workshops, faith leaders and other mental health counselors learn techniques for counseling families on the importance of restricting access to lethal means.
