1st Annual Military Veteran Symposium

December 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Event Type: Public

On December 12, the Maine Bureau of Veterans’ Services, VA Maine, and Maine’s Vet Centers will host a first-in-the-nation Summit on Veteran Suicide Prevention. Thomas Bowman, the Deputy Secretary for the US Department of Veterans Affairs will deliver the keynote address, with follow on discussions regarding community resources for suicide prevention and eliminating barriers to care. Some topline info:

          –  Nearly 10% of Maine’s population are veterans

          –  Maine is outpacing the nation in veteran suicide, so our need to come together to address this issue is critical

          –  The event is free

          –  CEUs will be provided

Above flyer includes an Eventbrite link for the full agenda and opportunity to register. Representatives from The Summit Project will have a table at this event and be part of the discussions regarding suicide awareness in and around the military.
