This pamphlet outlines four practical steps for ensuring the message is heard that keeping firearms out of reach during a suicidal crisis can save lives. These four steps are: changing policy to include lethal means counselling; training providers & gatekeepers on how to conduct lethal means counselling; changing information systems to cue providers to educate families; & expanding options in the community for temporary storage or disposal of firearms for families requesting these services.
