Abstract:

Over 45,000 Americans died by suicide in 2017, including 6,139 Veterans. In 2017, the suicide rate for Veterans was 1.5 times the rate for non-Veteran adults. Younger Veterans, Women Veterans, Veterans in a period of transition, Veterans with exposure to suicide and Veterans with access to lethal means are at highest risk of suicidality, as well as those identified with a substance use disorder, homelessness, and/or military sexual trauma (MST). This educational and informative workshop will go over facts about suicide, common myths vs. realities, the steps of S.A.V.E., S.A.V.E. training, and resources and references.
