CALM Conversations - Life Saving Workshop
An Australian workshop that teaches you how to “have a conversation” with somebody who may be thinking of ending their life.
This one day workshop CALM (Connect, Ask, Listen, Monitor) aims to start a conversation about suicide; provide you with the tools to recognise the warnings signs that somebody may be suicidal and then to ask about suicide; enable you to have a safe and intentional conversation if the answer is yes. It will also give you the resources to develop a safety plan and then link them into services or supports post your conversation if required. Most importantly it will teach you how to stay CALM when having this conversation.
