Veterans face enormous challenges as they transition from military to civilian life. Family members of veterans also face unique challenges in supporting their loved ones who served. COVID-19 presents new anxieties that may compound these factors. We are providing this webinar to support our Veterans and those who love them, live with them, work with them, or support them in any way, by offering perspective on the unique challenges they face, and teaching how to recognize signs of distress and what to do to provide support.

Forefront Suicide Prevention Center's LEARN® Saves Lives for Veterans webinar teaches essential skills for suicide prevention, specifically tailored to those who have served, their family members and friends, and those who work with veterans or support them in any way. We are partnering with the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs to bring this program to you in the comfort of your home for free. If you love a veteran or are a veteran, join us to learn:
• About the unique challenges veterans face as they transition from the military to civilian life
• How to make your home safer to prevent the risk of suicide
• How to ask a veteran about suicide in a safe way – whether they are friend, family member, colleague or client
• How to recognize the signs of a mental health crisis and practical steps to address it
