CHANGE DIRECTION - SUICIDE PREVENTION



 
 
A staggering 20 veterans commit suicide every day, and the VFW Silver State Post 3396 is committed to helping change the narrative and stigma surrounding mental health in America.

In order to raise awareness, foster community engagement, improve research and provide intervention for those affected by invisible injuries and emotional stress, the VFW has teamed up with the nationwide organizations Give an Hour and the Campaign to Change DirectionOne Mind, PatientsLikeMe and the Elizabeth Dole Foundation to combat this critical issue.

 
If you or your organization would like to host a safeTALK: suicide alertness for everyone or Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) training please contact our Suicide Prevention and Awareness Coordinator Jose Aragon at vfwpost3396@me.com.
 
We have partnered up with several community organizations to be able to provided for at little or no cost to Service Members, Veterans, and their Families safeTALK training.
