ADDRESSING VETERAN SUICIDE

Our timeline is monitored for signs of distress. Those identified are encouraged to seek help through direct links to the VA Crisis line and non-VA providers.

“Social networking sites for suicide prevention can facilitate social community among peers with similar experiences.”                                                                  Luxton DD, June JD, Fairall JM. ‘Social media and Suicide’
