The VA Releases a Social Media Safety Toolkit for Veterans, Their Families, and Friends

March 9, 2019 – As discussed in the National Strategy for Preventing Veteran Suicide, social media is an important intervention channel and a key piece of VA’s comprehensive, community-based suicide prevention strategy. Many service members and Veterans are active on social media platforms, and some have posted to express emotional distress or thoughts of suicide. Social media has become a critical channel for VA and partners like you to reach Veterans in crisis with safe messaging and resources.
