Join us on Sept 21 for a presentation exploring pain resources as well as harm reduction strategies to help those we care about from noon to 1pm in the auditorium of the Madison VA Hospital as part of Suicide Prevention Month and Substance Recovery Month. Limited to 50 participants.

Additionally, purple lights are on display at Madison VA Hospital and Rockford Clinic location throughout September to honor those on a recovery journey for mental health and substance use disorders and to provide recognition for the importance of providing care for these health conditions.

You can honor Veterans who are or have struggled with suicide and substance use disorders including those who have perished from these conditions by reflecting at our paper crane display inside the hospital. The crane symbolizes hope and healing during challenging times.
