Buds Gun Shop and Range KY has partnered with Lexington’s VA Health Care System to present this critically important seminar.

This is a FREE event, open to the general public, however reservations are necessary as seating is limited!

The VA has identified suicide prevention as a top priority for the care of our nation’s Veterans. Research shows that fourteen of the twenty Veterans who die by suicide each day are not receiving care from the VA.

Training will focus on:

– Suicide as a public health issue
– Asking and talking about suicide
– Validating the experience of someone who is suicidal
– Encouraging and Expediting mental health treatment.

Learn how to recognize warning signs and risk factors for suicide, creating protective factors against suicide, and how to access the services that are available within VA Health Care.

Whether you are a Veteran, or simply a person looking to help someone dealing with a difficult situation, you are very welcome to attend this FREE seminar.

We look forward to seeing you!
