Join the AMWA Gun Violence Prevention Task Force and the BulletPoints Project for a webinar on "Preventing Firearm Violence and Suicide: What Clinicians Can Do" with Dr. Amy Barnhorst.
Dr. Barnhorst is the Vice Chair for Community Mental Health at the UC Davis Department of Psychiatry and the director of the BulletPoints Project, a state-funded effort to develop and disseminate a curriculum to teach healthcare providers across California how to counsel at-risk patients about firearms. In her clinical work, she treats patients with serious mental illness a variety of inpatient and emergency settings. She’s a nationally recognized expert on firearms laws and mental illness, and studies the interface between firearm violence, suicide and the mental health system. She has testified before the California and Alaska Senates on these issues, and writes about them for the New York Times, Slate, and her blog at Psychology Today.
BulletPoints Project: Our mission is to teach medical and mental health care providers how to reduce the risk of firearm injury in their patients. We believe that a well-informed, politically neutral, and collaborative harm-reduction approach to firearm injury prevention is the most effective way to save lives.
