Veterans are a high risk group for suicide. While they may have certain risk factors in common with the general population, in many respects vets are a unique group with risk factors for suicide not shared with most nonmilitary groups. 


While services for vets are available through government departments of veterans affairs, many vets are not comfortable seeking help from these services. This means that community based helpers are often in the position of trying to provide help and support to vets. 


This short course will give community-based helpers a better understanding of the special risks and needs of veterans who may be at risk of suicide. It will teach you what to watch for, give you a better understanding of the risk factors for this group  and help you determine how best to help veterans at risk of suicide get to the right kind of help

If you are a helper, or you're learning to be one, you need to take this short course. Sign up for Veterans and Suicide now.
