Reducing access to lethal means can significantly reduce suicide rates. CALM-Utah provides social workers, physicians, and other clinicians with the skills and tools to have sensitive conversations with high-risk patients. It gives useful examples about how to ask about access to firearms (and other highly-fatal means), and works with patients and their families to increase safety in a supportive and engaging method.
The CALM-Utah online course is free, takes approximately one hour, and offers NASW-Utah credit and 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 credit with the UMA (see attached flyers; free printed flyers available on request). The course is available on the train.org/Utah website once you create a free profile.
I invite your participation in CALM-Utah and ask that you share this opportunity among your colleagues. Thank you for your help to spread the word.
