Join CeaseFirePA and RISE Rank & File for a virtual panel discussion about the suicide crisis in the veteran and law enforcement communities, and the resources and policy solutions needed to address it. Veterans are 1.5 times more likely to die by suicide than Americans who never served in the military; female veterans are 2.2 times more likely. Police officers are at a higher risk of dying by suicide than in the line of duty. Firearms account for the majority of these suicide deaths. But we know there are ways to prevent these tragedies. Join us for a solutions-oriented discussion. Panelists include: Lee Wagner, a Murrysville veteran and trained suicide interventionist; Dannielle Ripper, a police officer and veteran; and Dr. Amy Barnhorst, a clinical emergency psychiatrist and director of the BulletPoints project.
