This study is the first to assess the success of extending the concept of means restriction education to violence prevention in general, rather than limiting it to suicide per se. 62 patients/caretakers were not exposed to the means restriction (untrained), and 41 (40%) were trained. Trained parents (40%) were more likely to take action to limit access to lethal means following in-person training.
