National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month emphasizes the critical need to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this stigmatized topic. It is important to address these issues in the military and veteran community, as well. Veterans do not live, work, and serve in isolation from the community, the nation, or the world. This month reminds us to reach out to those affected by suicide, raise awareness and connect individuals with suicidal ideation to treatment services.
