Cultural Competence Classes
Our cultural competence classes bring mental health professionals into the range to learn the basics of firearms. This helps therapists get a better understanding of the “gun culture/2A community.” Our course is the first of its kind and rewards practitioners with 3 CEUs upon completion.
Bridging the Gap Between Mental Health & Gun Ownership
We work together with national organizations such as Mental Health America. Mental health and firearms are two subjects that are controversial and highly stigmatized. Previously, the two worlds never talked to each other. By bridging this gap, we have been able to bring the mental health community to national firearm shows such as the NRA and SHOT Show. Getting them involved in firearm-related podcasts and radio shows help demystify “gun culture.” This program also works to educate the Second Amendment Community to show counseling experience and get firearms owners more help. We hand out literature and wrist bands that promote treatment engagement.
Make a change
What we’ve achieved so far is only the beginning. Our vision is to create a society where the mental health and firearms communities come together to develop innovative programs based on fact and understanding to reduce suicide and promote treatment engagement.
