In recognition of Army Suicide Prevention Month (September 2009) and the upcoming observance of Veterans’ Day (November 11), here is a valuable resource for aiding our veterans in need.

HEALING SUICIDAL VETERANS: Recognizing, Supporting and Answering Their Pleas for Help (October 2009, New Horizon Press) is written by Victor Montgomery, III, MAEd., CMAC, RAS, who has worked with thousands of veterans and families as a former crisis intervention therapist at the National Veterans’ Suicide Prevention Lifeline and as an addiction therapist in outpatient clinics.

In HEALING SUICIDAL VETERANS, Montgomery provides:

· Tips and effective strategies for veterans to cope and heal.

· Checklists to identify symptoms of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury and substance abuse.

· Twelve real-life stories featuring veterans from the Iraq, Afghanistan, Gulf, Beirut, Vietnam and Korean wars.

· Resources for veterans to seek the help they need.

We hope you will want to feature HEALING SUICIDAL VETERANS, a vital guide for any veteran struggling with suicidal impulses.

I don't endorse many books but anything dealing with mental health and to try and stem the flow of suicides is something I fully support since I have tried it 3 times and luckily I even failed at that now I try and keep others from attempting it.
