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.
We have workshops that have helped others throughout the US understand warning signs and what to do if there person is showing signs of feeling suicidal. This workshop had excellent ratings.
This presentation will do the following:
Heighten awareness about suicide for veterans
Provide knowledge of warning signs, risk factors, and protective factors, and much more
Teach skills to know how to intervene with a suicidal person
Give resources specific to veterans
After the workshop you should be able to:
Define suicidal behaviors
Know the specific warning signs that a veteran might have
Understand Risk factors and warning signs
Demonstrate intervention strategies
Identify resources specific to veterans
