THE VETERANS' PRESS: Suicide Prevention Month: Caring for veterans everywhere

| September 21, 2021 1:00 AM

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. VA is encouraging families and friends to reach out and provide support this month — and every month — to the veterans in their lives. Suicide prevention is the top clinical priority for VA. As a result, VA is working closely with governmental organizations and private-sector partners to ensure veterans receive the support they need.

Reaching out means veterans never feel alone.
