Hunt Heroes Foundation, Stop Soldier Suicide and Blue Star Families Join to Support At-Risk Veterans and Active Members for National Suicide Prevention Month

Military veterans, active members, and loved ones are invited to upcoming webinar in observance of National Suicide Prevention Month

According to the Watson Institute, 17 veterans commit suicide per day. Military suicides have now climbed 4 times higher than deaths in war operations since 9/11. Combining totals of both active-duty service members and veterans, an estimated 30,177 have died by suicide, compared to the 7,057 deaths of the post 9/11 wars.

The live webinar will consist of an in-depth conversation between the key speakers, followed by a Q&A opportunity for all attendees. Topics of focus will include the impact of combat experience on mental health and suicidality, warning signs and diagnosis of PTSD, and impacts of COVID-19 on mental health among the military.
