At the Intersection of Guns and Mental Health: The Introductory Course
Hey healthcare workers, check this out. In 2017, PEW Research Center conducted a survey and found that 42% of Americans either own firearms or live with somebody who does. In 2020, we added another 8 million brand new gun-owners to the mix, which means you can assume about half of your clientele either owns a gun or lives with one.
If you’re not comfortable having a firearms conversation about responsible storage or suicide intervention in a time of need, that’s fine! Walk the Talk America is providing a free cultural competence course in firearms for healthcare workers. Everything you need to know is on this page. Let’s serve our patients well!
