September Is Suicide Prevention Month. If you know someone who is feeling depressed and expressing suicidal thoughts thoughts we recommend contacting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention www.afsp.org   .Please encourage Veterans or Service Members to visit http://www.veteranscrisisline.net/ThePowerof1.aspx

Many of our Veterans and students ASK Dr. Applewhite: Are suicide prevention programs working? How do you know if you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts? These are the questions many Students and Veterans are asking as they witness more reports of depression and suicide attempts on college campuses. 

Dr. Danita Applewhite and guests discuss whether the type of suicide prevention information available is addressing how stress, depression, disability can lead to suicidal thoughts and affect school and work performance.  In addition, many Veterans who are readjusting to civilian life, as well as Non-Veterans, are completing online classes while managing the responsibility of a family, pressures at work, and physical and emotional challenges. Join our Special Guests Melinda Vail, Intuitive Therapist and Steve Schiro, Educator as they share information on the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention "Out of the Darkness Walks".
