Event Series CALM and CALM Care Train the Trainer Program

CALM and CALM Care Train the Trainer Program


Become a CALM Trainer before the end of the year! CALM is becoming the most popular Suicide Intervention Skills program in Australia, and here is why: It's a one-day program, reducing clients costs and minimising staff absence. It's Australian researched and based. It's accredited with the peak body Suicide Prevention Australia. Many participants have attended other similar programs and stated how much they love the model and how it's so easy to remember. Underpinned by Motivational Interviewing which research is now showing positive results for suicide prevention/intervention. CALM is the only intervention program in Australia that has not just an app for the safety planning, but also for the person completing an intervention. CALM Intentionally focuses on the skills of communication, rather than providing just a theory or model. CALM is the only suicide intervention program delivered either virtually or in-person.

Suicide Prevention Training

Opening conversations around suicide is vital to increase awareness and help prevent suicide in our communities – but knowing exactly how to do that can be daunting. Over 10 million Australian adults are estimated to know someone who has died by suicide. One in two young people are impacted by suicide by the time they turn 25 and around 8-9 lives are lost by suicide every day.
