Free Suicide Prevention Trainings in Bozeman

 

March 30, 2022

The Overwatch Project is coming at veteran suicide prevention from a new direction, using an approach that was successfully utilized to help solve another complex problem: drunk driving. We're building the equivalent of the "Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk" campaign for veterans, only instead of talking about alcohol and vehicles, we're talking about firearms and suicide.

The Overwatch Project isn't your usual suicide prevention initiative. It's gritty and blunt and in-your-face, as it takes on a topic that is often taboo: the intersection of firearms and suicide. Our goal is to save lives by equipping people to #JustFKNAsk – and successfully intervene to discuss and make plans for protective firearms storage measures when a life is on the line.

All are welcome. While the Overwatch Project has a focus on the military and veteran community, anyone who is concerned about suicide in Montana can benefit from this training.

These events are free, and tickets must be reserved in advance or at the door.

The Bozeman workshop will be held on April 9, 2022, at 9 AM at MSU Inspiration Hall at Norm Asbjornson Hall. Provided in partnership with MSU Travis W. Atkins Veteran Support Center, MSU Counseling and Psychological Services, the Bozeman Help Center, and Warriors & Quiet Waters Foundation.
