Lethal Means Safety

Lethal means safety is measured by how many dangerous items or objects a person has access to, and by how lethal each of those things is. Firearms, as well as certain poisons and medications, are the most lethal items commonly found in American homes. Putting time and space between someone having a suicidal crisis and the lethal means in their environment can save their life. On this page you will find resources that will help you assess, plan for and improve lethal means safety for yourself and others.
