Veterans Suicide Prevention and Intervention

Suicide is a global public health problem, of which suicide among Veterans is a significant portion. In fact, did you know that 22% of U.S. deaths from suicide are Veterans (Kemp & Bossarte, 2012)? Given this, it is crucial that you are well-equipped to help Veterans and military personnel to decrease the dramatic numbers of suicide that occur daily.

This course focuses on identifying the warning signs of suicide among Veterans, risk and protective factors, as well as the assessment and preventative interventions of suicidality. You will review some model programs established within the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, address wait-times for treatment, and learn about other barriers related to access for treatment including the role of military culture.

This course is geared toward clinical professionals who work closely with Veterans in a variety of healthcare settings. A blend of case studies and interactive exercises will prepare you to apply the knowledge you gain in this training, so that you may call upon it in your own setting as needed.
