About Together-With-Veterans

The goal of Together with Veterans is to build and sustain local capacity to implement multiple coordinated suicide prevention strategies. Together with Veterans is a community-engaged process for identifying, selecting, and implementing a variety of evidence based and promising practices for the reduction of suicide and promotion of wellness among Veterans living in rural communities. Every community is different. Rather than a one-size-fits all approach, Together with Veterans provides a process that embraces the differences as opportunities to maximize the impact of suicide prevention efforts. By identifying local needs and contexts, suicide prevention strategies are tailored to individual communities. Together with Veterans is a partnership between local community members, Veterans Health Administration, and suicide prevention experts. The partnership brings together local knowledge and expertise with the resources, training, and technical assistance needed to enhance local capacity.
