Whole Community Wellbeing
Making Connections for Mental Health and Wellbeing for Men and Boys
Through our Making Connections project, NALHD is helping communities across the state connect Veterans and their families with what they need to thrive as parents, spouses, and grandparents. This work is supported by our partners at the Prevention Institute and the Movember Foundation.
NALHD members are working with the Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska (BHECN) to increase availability of military culturally competent suicide prevention training across the state. This project is funding and supporting selected LHDs to build capacity to offer QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer). People trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.
