The US Army has designated September as Suicide Prevention Month.  Therefore, as a part of our continuing efforts to educate, inform, and assist veterans, The Alabama Veterans Memorial Foundation is sponsoring and hosting a free Suicide Awareness and Prevention Seminar for veterans and their families and anyone of the general public with an interest.  The seminar will be conducted on Sunday 11 September at 4 PM at the Alabama Veterans Memorial Park located just off of I-459 at the Liberty Parkway exit (Exit 23).

 

The seminar will be conducted by an experienced counselor from US Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center here in Birmingham.

  

There will be free snacks and refreshments available to all who attend.  Please share this information to all the veterans and veteran’s organizations that you are affiliated with or within your circle of influence as well as anyone from the general public. We appreciate your support and attendance for this worthy cause even if you do not think you know of anyone suffering or susceptible to suicide.
