The Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs is hosting a Suicide Prevention and Awareness forum on Wednesday, June 22 at the Monona Terrace from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and would like to invite you and/or your organization to attend.
The Combating Veteran Suicide forum focuses on providing community members, social workers, mental health providers, law enforcement, and veteran advocates with trainings and tools to help when a veteran is in need of assistance. Panel discussions and breakouts have been designed to help attendees understand the needs of many of the unserved or at-risk populations within the veteran community.
