Losing someone to suicide is a tragedy that can be prevented when one has the right skills and tools. This three day Train the Trainer (T4T) workshop will provide you with the skills, knowledge and resources to help your participants: recognise the subtle warning signs somebody may be at risk; open up a conversation in a comfortable and safe manner; help the person reconnect with their strengths and hold their hope and lastly to identify referral pathways and develop a meaningful safety plan. An evidence-informed program drawing on the latest research and methodologies, it is informed
by lived experience and has a strong focus on what language to use to achieve a positive outcome.
The T4T is effectively delivered over a 3 day period. This ensures that all participants understand the theories, principles and models that underpin CALM; fully grasp and be able to demonstrate their ability to explain and use the CALM model of intervention and lastly, to gain confidence in their ability to competently deliver the one day program to their audiences.

Day 1 – The program will be delivered in its entirety by CALM trainers to give you a view of the one day presentation.

Day 2 – Each component of the model will be explained in full detail covering the evidence that underpins and informs the CALM model.

Day 3 – Each participant will have the opportunity to practice and present a section of the program to ensure they have understood the intent and delivery method of the CALM model as well as enabling them to gain confidence in their presentation styles.
