UWRF Veterans’ Mental Health Event




The University of Wisconsin-River Falls will host a Thursday, May 2, discussion about mental health concerns among Veterans and military students, an event made possible by a $5,000 grant the university has received to support that population. 

 

The public is invited to hear Mike Waldron, executive director of 23rd Veteran, speak about the work he and his organization are doing to support the well-being of Veterans and military students. 

 

In a variety of ways, 23rd Veteran works to support Veterans and prevent suicides by military members. According to the organization Stop Soldier Suicide, Veterans are at a 72% higher risk of suicide than people who have not served in the military. 

 

Waldon will speak at two sessions: one from 11 a.m.-noon and the other from 1:30-2:30 p.m., both in the Trimbelle River Room in the University Center, 501 Wild Rose Ave., on campus.

 

Refreshments will be served.
