Yesterday, I posted about the outstanding Suicide Prevention Training class that our staff attended.  As a follow up to this posting, I would like to share our trainer’s information:

Yvette Branson, PhD
Suicide Prevention Coordinator
VA Medical Centers
New York Harbor Healthcare System
718.836.6600 x6807
212.686.7500 x7456

If you are located in the New York City area and interested in local traning, please contact Yvette.  In her training, she stressed that everyone that comes in contact with veterans can benefit.

If you are not in the NYC area, every VA Medical Center has a Suicide Prevention Coordinator on staff.  Please call your local center for more information.
