Each day an estimated 22 U.S. military veterans die by suicide, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Learn to identify the warning signs, and what you can do to help, at a Military and Veteran Suicide Prevention program organized and presented by Cal U staff.

Presenters are:

  • Capt. Robert Prah, director of the Office of Veterans Affairs at Cal U. A member of the Army National Guard, he is a suicide intervention officer and a trainer for the Army-approved Ask, Care, Escort (ACE) suicide prevention and awareness training program.
  • Capt. Carolyn Clements, assistant director and military coordinator for Cal U Global Online. She is a trainer for Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), the Army-approved intervention training for Army leaders, chaplains and other care providers. Explore resources for military students
  • Jason Brosk, a readjustment counseling therapist who works with veterans at the Department of Veterans Affairs center in McKeesport, Pa.

The program is free and open to the public. Veterans and their families are encouraged to attend.

Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance.
