1/2 Day workshop

What is CALM Care?

CALM Care is a 1/2 day suicide awareness workshop. Oftentimes there are subtle signs that someone is struggling with life, and when these feelings become unbearable, they may start thinking suicide is their only option.
This CALM Care program teaches you how to be suicide aware, and recognise when someone may be thinking about ending their life.
Delivered in person, this course will help you recognise the subtle warning signs that are often missed or overlooked, how to approach them, make a connection, and know what to say. Above all, it will equip you to confidently put your hand up, when someone is signalling they are in crisis.

  • How to approach the person and make a connection

  • How to determine if suicide is in their thoughts

  • What to do about it, to ensure the person’s safety is addressed and they are protected from suicide
