Vet to Vet Tennessee 2018 Phase II Grants Health Initiative Proposal
This plan emphasizes the mental health initiative by encouraging mental wellness through suicide prevention, which is a major need identified within this spectrum as suicide is one of the leading causes of death in our country with rising death tolls in nearly all states including our own. The micro effects evoke individual and familial devastation raking economic costs of 93 billion dollars each year. Building from our Phase I project, we will serve veterans, youth, teens and young adults. Phase II will specifically focus on spreading awareness and increasing skill sets in those who are in optimal positions to influence high-risk individuals in our communities, including Knox County and other surrounding, rural areas.
