Rockers in Recovery & SAMHSA has partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs
Posted on Apr 2nd, 2015
Rockers in Recovery (RIR) and The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) have partnered on many great prevention and awareness projects, this new project is very important to our veterans that are suffering. A U.S. military veteran commits suicide every 65 minutes (pdf) on average, according to a recent study from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Please share the following information everywhere your organization can, so our veterans know there is help.
Rockers in Recovery & SAMHSA has partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs so that their National Suicide Prevention Lifeline could act as the single point of entry to help meet the special needs of veterans and service members in crisis. Callers to SAMHSA’s Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK) can press “1” to be connected to the VA’s Veterans Crisis Line in Canandaigua, NY. Visit for help http://goo.gl/cseHpj
