2021 DOD/VA Suicide Prevention Conference
- This event has passed.
On behalf of Dr. Matthew Miller, Director of Suicide Prevention, the Department of Veterans Affairs is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2021 Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Suicide Prevention Conference, to be held virtually May 18-20, 2021.
This year’s theme, Make Every Connection Count: Putting the 7 Strategies for Suicide Prevention to Work, promotes a comprehensive approach to prevention, which uses evidence-informed programs, tools, and practices to foster connectedness, increase coping and problem-solving, create protective environments, and strengthen suicide care, among other efforts. Suicide prevention among our Service members, Veterans, and families is a top priority for the DOD and VA.
Due to coronavirus-related considerations and with an abundance of caution, this year’s conference will be hosted virtually. There will be a customized website specifically for the conference, including a virtual platform for live and pre-recorded presentations, participant interaction, and networking. This platform will provide you with the tools to interact directly with presenters, subject matter experts, and each other.
