Conference Aim:

Safe storage of firearms has been identified as one of the most important targets to reduce suicide in the 21st century. Healthcare providers are in a position to help patients identify periods of elevated risk for suicide, and problem-solve how to safely store firearms to help those individuals reduce their risk. These conversations are especially important for our military veterans, who own firearms, die by suicide, and use firearms in suicide attempts at higher rates than the general U.S. population.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and the San Francisco VA Health Care System have teamed up to bring experts on suicide prevention and veterans issues together to inform clinicians, policymakers and other stakeholders in the veteran community about cutting-edge research and community involvement in promoting lethal means safety and safe firearm storage.
