Forward Flag Veteran Centers, the Bluebird and Coffee Bunker
Forward Flag provides Suicide Prevention Training and activities to help reduce the high rate of veteran suicide.
“Our Mission-Veteran Suicide Prevention”, has been the motto of Forward Flag since it’s inception in 2012.
Raising awareness of the issue of the high rates of suicide among our veterans, and providing alternatives for the friends and families of these veterans. Included on our Forward Flag staff are Master Trainers for the QPR Institute and we provide free virtual or live Gatekeeper Training, plus advanced courses in Suicide Prevention Triage, Law enforcement, EMT and school based Suicide Prevention and Suicide Risk Assessment and Management.
With the presence of Forward Flag in Eastern Tennessee, new resources are being added to help combat the 20 veterans lost to suicide every day. The mission of Forward Flag is aligned to fit with the Governor’s Challenge for Suicide Prevention, the PREVENTS program, began by executive order by President Trump, to help in this ongoing struggle. Education via training has been proven a great tool for the community. An additional prevention tool for the veteran, is the activities that we provide in our New Mexico office, many of which will be integrated into the Tennessee operation.
Examples of these activities are yoga, art, kayaking, archery, music, equine therapy and more. These activities allow the veterans to re-socialize with other veterans and civilians.
