- In order to participate in a Counseling on Access to Lethal Means (CALM) training, persons must first attend a suicide prevention training such as Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR), Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), or SafeTALK
If you are currently experiencing thoughts of suicide, do not take a training at this time. Instead, please contact one of the following:

All lines are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They are free and confidential.
Many of the trainings offered through Get Trained to Help include discussions on suicide, thoughts of suicide, and overdose or other mental health crises. These trainings may therefore bring up troubling feelings and thoughts for attendees. Trainings are not a form of counseling, therapy, or a support group. If you or someone close to you has been impacted by a mental health crisis, such as suicide, we suggest that you delay taking these trainings for six month to one year. If you have questions or would like to better understand this safety guideline, please email the Coordinator of the county where you would be taking the training.
