Join the Wounded Warrior Project’s Mike Richardson as he uncovers the “Myths and Facts about Wounded Warriors.” Wounded Veterans are exceptionally capable, motivated, and skilled. They deserve every opportunity to thrive and to engage meaningfully in the civilian world. A particularly challenging time for many Veterans is during their transition into civilian life. This can be even more difficult for them when they are faced with negative, and often inaccurate, beliefs, also known as stigmas, about who they are and how they fit in the world. In this course, Richardson dispels some common myths about our country’s Wounded Warriors and provides facts to help you better connect with the Wounded Warriors in your life.

S.A.V.E.

Subject Matter Expert: Megan McCarthy, Ph.D.

Our hope for this course is that you will become empowered to play a vital role in suicide prevention. This course was developed in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs and is presented by Dr. Megan McCarthy, Deputy Director, Suicide Prevention. You will develop a general understanding of the problem of suicide in the United States; understand how to identify a Veteran who may be at risk for suicide; and, finally, know what to do if you identify a Veteran at risk. Each of us has the opportunity to be that one person who makes a difference--the person who asks the question that can save a Veteran's life, or the life of anyone struggling with the thoughts of suicide. Using the simple steps of S.A.V.E., we can all make a difference.
