Last Sunday on March 12th, members from the Office of Military and Veterans Affairs attended a Su***de Awareness event at Camden County College. This event included a resource fair in which Veterans were able to talk and receive helpful resources and information pertaining to benefits and services available to them. There was also a panel discussion where Veterans who survived su***de spoke about their experiences and educated others on the effects and rates of su***de in the military. On average, 22 Veterans commit su***de each day and it is therefore crucial for us to spread awareness on the subject and to provide support and resources to Veterans in need. Thank you very much to everyone who attended this eye-opening event and please reach out for help if ever needed (Veteran Crisis Line: (800)-273-8255).
