September is suicide awareness month.
As you may know, according to 2015 data, 20 veterans commit suicide on a daily basis.
As a way to help bring awareness of this, the Albert Lea VA Clinic will be participating in a 20 minute walk on 9/19 @ 4:30 pm. We invite anyone to participate that is interested.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
