U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie will host a Suicide Prevention for Veterans training today in Elizabethtown. As the military becomes more aware of veterans mental health, local healthcare workers will need to be more prepared to help veterans dealing with trauma.
“What we’ve done before and what we’re having is members of the (Louisville) VA Medical Center, who have expertise in this area, getting together with healthcare officials in the area to teach, but it is really marketed towards people who are social workers and do intervention. The signs and things to look for too, “ says Guthrie.
The training will take place today at 2 p.m. at the American Legion Post 113. Everyone is welcome to attend the event.
