 JD Foundation Program | Veteran Training /Support Program

Suicide awareness and prevention for veteran’s families and caregivers:

This program was designed for people who live with a veteran, who is a caregiver, or is in contact with veterans.

 

Many of the warning signs are alike as in our 90-minute workshops for adults. However, Veteran’s have more specific issues that many of us non-military people understand. For this reason, this program was developed with the help of a veteran suicide awareness and prevention specialist.
