Staff Perspective: Uniting for Suicide Postvention

Grieving the death of a loved one is never easy. When someone dies by suicide, there can be additional challenges and emotions for those left behind. Many people are profoundly affected when someone dies by suicide, including family, friends, co-workers, and providers. In fact, entire communities can be affected by a suicide loss. Given what we know about the effects of suicide loss, having access to suicide postvention resources is critical to supporting suicide loss survivors.

Staff Perspective: Reintegration Experiences of Service Members and Veterans - Challenges and Changes!

Erin Frick ,Psy.D.

While there are a variety of challenges during the reintegration process, the most commonly reported ones included determining where to live, career/educational pursuits (i.e., Do I go into the workforce or go back to school? What kind of job do I want now?), and establishing new routines. One thing that most all Service members will say is that the military provides a structure to life that simply isn’t inherently found in a civilian lifestyle. One friend noted, “Going from a set schedule and working outside the home to being a stay-at-home parent and fulltime student has been challenging.” Another noted, “I wasn’t sure if I could do the same job in the same place with the same people year after year.” He indicated that the intrinsic changes associated with military service was one aspect he valued and during the reintegration process he was struggling with fears of stagnancy possible in a traditional civilian career field.

Staff Perspective: Veterans Day - More than Just a Day Off Work or a Free Meal for Military Families

Erin Frick ,Psy.D.

My husband retired from the U.S. Air Force in 2003 after serving both stateside and overseas for over 20 years. I doubt if he fully understands how much I respect him for his service to our country. We have a 1-year-old daughter and I am excited to see how he will share his military experiences with her. To her, “DaDa” is already her favorite person in the world (which is very hard for a mom to admit), so I imagine she will think even more of him as she learns about his military service. I am so proud to be the wife of a Veteran that I wanted to better understand the origins of Veterans Day and to briefly examine what it might mean to military families
