Veterans' Corner

(Continued)

Now, military communities are vulnerable to the same social ills that effect civilians. Divorce, drug use and alcohol abuse have increased substantially leading to this increase in suicides. This shift inside the military community in the past few years has the VA scrambling to offer as many suicide hot-lines and prevention treatment centers as possible.

These comprehensive, wide-ranging suicide prevention initiatives, including a toll free Veterans Crisis Line, placement of  Suicide Penetration Coordinators at all VA medical centers and large outpatient facilities, has helped prevent countless attempted suicides.

Veterans or anyone concerned about a veteran, can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press1, even if they are not registered with VA or enrolled in VA health care. Let's keep an eye and helping hand available to our veterans. Speak to you next week.
