Participants will learn about the purpose of lethal means safety counseling, including how to work with Veterans and their friends and family to facilitate lethal means safety during high-risk periods. The training emphasizes Veteran autonomy and teaches clinicians to work collaboratively with Veterans towards solutions that align with each Veteran’s values and preferences. Following completion of the training, providers will have a better understanding of how to utilize lethal means safety counseling to enhance suicide prevention efforts with the Veterans they serve.
