Convo CALM (Counseling on Access to Lethal Means) is a 75 minute version of CALM that has been developed by experienced CALM trainers with both civilian and military /veteran populations from half a dozen states. It is designed specifically for presentations to general audiences with a focus on reaching gun owners. It combines traditional elements of gatekeeper training such as asking about suicide risk with a direct and collaborative discussion about the importance of means safety when risk is detected. The training reviews various option for increasing means safety and connecting the at-risk individual with more formal resources.
