September is National Suicide Prevention Month.
The Department of Veterans Affairs, one of the largest employers of social workers, this month is running a #BeThere suicide prevention campaign for veterans and service members.
The campaign offers tips we can all do to prevent people from dying by suicide.
Here are other Suicide Prevention Month resources social workers that may interest social workers and the organizations they work for:
- Veteran Crisis Line
- Partner Outreach Hub
- Make the Connection website (video catalog of Veteran telling their stories about recovery from various struggles):
- Veteran Outreach Toolkit
Social workers can also check out the National Association of Social Workers Military & Veterans website.
