Oregon CALM (Counseling on Access to Lethal Means) is a 4-hour training developed to assist health care and direct service providers in approaching Lethal Means Counseling with an informed, collaborative, and respectful attitude. It has been adapted from the National CALM curriculum to incorporate components of Addressing Firearm Safety with Patients at Risk of Suicide: A Couse for Healthcare Providers in Rural Areas and research with Oregon rural firearm owners. Oregon CALM is neither anti-gun nor anti-medication. Given the focus on lethal means counseling, course content and discussions will cover these topics in depth. Learning Outcomes Understand why means matter through local and national data, relevant research, and practice scenarios Learn the most effective ways to address means with firearms owners through Oregon-specific research, video demonstrations, and practice scenarios Build confidence in conducting lethal means counseling with clients at risk of suicide.
