Come join CAYEN at the upcoming Military and Veteran Suicide Awareness and Prevention Day on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Capitol (East Side of the California State Capitol 1315 10th St, Sacramento, CA 95814).
We are coming together to raise awareness about suicide within the military and among veterans. Suicide is a serious and tragic public health problem that can be prevented through mental health and substance use awareness, services, and support. Suicide affects all Americans, but data show that active duty service members and veterans die by suicide at much higher rates than the civilian population. All of us have a responsibility to support and help our military personnel, their families, and veterans for protecting and serving our country. We must speak up about mental health, wellness, and suicide prevention. Our voices are amplified when we speak up together. By hosting Military and Veteran Suicide Awareness and Prevention Day, we bring attention to a stigmatized topic, strengthen community, and energize efforts to save the lives of those who have courageously served our country and protected us.
CAYEN will have a booth at the event. Come say hello and get to know our program!
This is a free community event. For more information, check out the flyer!
