About the Event

This training is reserved for Marion County Health & Human Services personnel and guests. They are covering the full cost of registration, regularly $240. Lunch will be provided.

Oregon CALM assists health care and direct service providers in using Lethal Means Counseling with an informed, collaborative, and respectful approach. 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.

This training meets a portion of the Oregon HB2315 legislative mandate for suicide-specific continuing education for all mental health and behavioral health roles. Oregon CALM is a suicide prevention training that 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 individuals who firearms through Oregon-specific research, video demonstrations, and practice scenarios
  • Build confidence in conducting lethal means counseling related to firearms, medications, and other means with clients at risk of suicide

Participants will receive a certificate of completion and 5 CE's from the Oregon NASW, either of which can be submitted to other credentialling boards for Continuing Education Credits.
