Let’s Talk about Guns: Engaging Firearms Owners in Lethal Means Restriction

Mar 16, 2022

Event Time: 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.


Over half of all suicide deaths in Ohio involve firearms, including nearly 60% of male suicide deaths. An effective, comprehensive approach to suicide prevention must therefore include strategies around guns, but many prevention advocates are unfamiliar with firearms and the culture of gun ownership. As a prevention specialist and long-time gun owner, Daniel Bennett understands how to talk to gun owners and gun retailers about suicide prevention, and he’s prepared to share tips, tactics, and strategies with other suicide prevention advocates in our upcoming 60-minute webinar. Register today to learn best practices in lethal means restriction for firearms, how to initiate the conversation of suicide prevention with gun owners, and for a preview of Life Side Ohio, an upcoming suicide prevention resource developed specifically for the firearms community.


Registration is $25 per person and will be billed by email. Continuing education will be provided for prevention, addiction counseling, social work, and marriage and family counseling.
