Mental Wellness & Suicide Prevention in the Veteran Community @ Webinar
Mar 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Mental Wellness and Suicide Prevention. Those are two broad topics and we often shy away from discussing them with our loved ones, especially in the veteran community. There are lots of questions: Do 22 veterans on average really die by suicide every day? If we talk about suicide does that increase the likelihood of it occurring? I’m concerned about a veteran in my life but they don’t want to engage in VA services, so what should I do?
Join AFSP during your lunch hour on Thursday, March 18th for a conversation addressing common questions and shedding some light on this important health topic. The panelists are an Army veteran spouse who lost her husband to suicide, a veteran sharing his own experience, as well as representatives from the VA, the Vet Center, and the BC SAFE Suicide Prevention Coalition from Broome County, NY.
*Registration is required and a Zoom link will be sent to the email address you provide prior to the program. This program will NOT be recorded.
