CDP Presents: Face the Fight Against Veteran Suicide via Zoom

18 September 2024, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern

Description: Face the Fight (FTF), founded by USAA, focuses on enhancing and expanding suicide prevention initiatives within the veteran community. Face the Fight’s unique approach is a non-siloed, science backed, and comprehensive strategy targeted to reduce veteran suicide. It incorporates three main components: philanthropic grantmaking, forming a coalition of supportive organizations, and initiating a public health campaign. Leveraging the CDC's suicide prevention framework, Face the Fight targets three priority areas: (1) Creating Protective Environments, (2) Strengthening Access to and Delivery of Suicide Care, and (3) Identifying and Supporting Individuals at Risk.

Notably, Face the Fight’s grantmaking includes access to a technical assistance team that aids in the expansion and execution of evidence-informed suicide prevention programs. This webinar will offer an introduction to the CDC's suicide prevention model, highlight FTF’s distinct approach to combating veteran suicide, and review specific projects funded by Face the Fight. Additionally, it will provide resources, training, and information on other programs available to veterans and those who support them.

Please note: While registration is slated to end once the webinar begins on 18 September 2024, space in this event is limited and registration will close once capacity has been reached, even if this is before the final registration date. 

Target Audience: For behavioral health/healthcare providers who treat military personnel, veterans, and their families.
