September is Suicide Prevention Month.
The VFW remains dedicated to raising awareness, improving research and breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health, and we’re asking you to get involved.
We’re proud to announce the second annual “A Day to Change Direction” will take place October 28. This important day is a national day of service and action to change the dialogue on mental health for America’s veterans and American communities. It offers you, your Post and your community a day to come together to make an invaluable difference in the lives of so many.
As brothers and sisters-in-arms, we have an obligation to ensure every veteran receives the help and support they need.
It’s not too early to start planning an event in support of A Day to Change Direction that will serve to educate your community about the Five Signs of Emotional Suffering and the Healthy Habits of Emotional Well-being. Last year, more than 200 VFW Posts and 13,000 volunteers participated, and we’d like this year to be even bigger!
Start planning your event today.
Thank you for your service, and for all you do FOR VETERANS.
Your VFW Membership Team
