Gayle Witham, Community Engagement Partnership Coordinator at the Battle Creek VA Medical Center, will present an update on a new strategy the VA has developed. Suicide Prevention (SP) 2.0 was developed to decrease the number of veterans who die by suicide and emphasizes both community-based intervention and clinically-based treatments. Research has demonstrated that increasing collaboration across multiple community sectors is pivotal to improving population health outcomes.
Her presentation will be done via Microsoft Teams on Tuesday, March 15, from noon to 12:40 p.m. It will include current data about veteran suicides, detailed information about the new strategy that the VA has launched, and time for questions. The information given will be valuable for everyone, especially those whose work or life touches the lives of veterans. This presentation is part of the monthly meeting of the Berrien Count Suicide Prevention Coalition.
