The CALM and CALM Care combined 5 day T4T Virtual Workshop

The CALM 1-day workshop is a one-day workshop that teaches four key actions: Connect, Ask, Listen, Monitor to build confidence, knowledge and skills.

The CALM Care workshop is a half-day workshop teaches you how to be suicide aware and recognise when someone may be thinking about ending their life. It will help you recognise subtle warning signs, how to make a connection and know what to say.

The T4T is effectively delivered over a 4-day period face-to-face OR over a 5-day period virtually. This ensures that all participants understand the theories, principles and models that underpin CALM and the CALM Care programs; fully grasp and are able to demonstrate their ability to explain and use the CALM model of intervention and the CALM Care model of engagement, as well as raise awareness, and lastly to gain confidence in their ability to competently deliver these programs to their audiences.
