The Lehigh County Veterans’ Mentorship Program, a beneficial county effort which plays shortstop to a full Veterans’ Treatment Court as practiced in other states and a few counties of this Commonwealth, is holding a special Veterans Forum partially as a result of recent veterans’ suicides in the area. It is entitled, “Hope, Healing and Returning Home.” Its purpose is to provide information regarding: suicide prevention, the Veterans’ Mentorship Program itself, and other support services. It will be held on 7 November, between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., at the former Veterans Sanctuary site at 24 S. Fifth St., Allentown.
The target audience for this cost-free event is a broad one: veterans and their family members, veterans service organizations, behavioral health program administrators and clinicians, county human service administrators, professionals involved in working with veterans, criminal justice professionals and those involved in the court system, and state and local officials or citizens interested in helping veterans. In other words, all are welcome if you pre-register.
