Description

The aims of this program are to describe the unique population of Veterans with Other Than Honorable (OTH) discharge, and to identify suicide prevention efforts with this population of Veterans. This will be presented by a multi-disciplinary team that will consist of a psychiatric epidemiologist, a Veteran advocate who has testified on this issue, an attorney who specifically works with this population, and a clinical psychologist who specializes in suicide prevention efforts with Veterans. Presenters will lead participants through the dynamic journey of Veterans with OTH discharges from a data, legal, personal, and clinical perspective to enhance the understanding of the potential struggles with this population who has been found to be at heightened risk for suicide. Clinical strategies on how to work with Veterans with OTH discharges and their families will be explored.
 
Participants will be able to:
  1. Illustrate the unique experiences of Veterans with Other than Honorable discharges to address reasons why they may be at high risk for suicide
  2. Recommend best practices on how to clinically address mental health and other issues that may arise in Veterans with Other than Honorable discharges​
