Speaker: Tara Reyna

Moderator: Kimberly Patterson

In the first year after leaving military service, the rate of veteran suicide is 2.5x higher compared to the active-duty population. During this time, veterans are experiencing change in all major areas of life: family, job, community, friendships, and life purpose. We will discuss why these changes can be both mentally and physically overwhelming, the impact of substance use, and discuss the various programs and places in the community that can provide support.
