The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are proud to announce the cities that will participate in the first group for the Mayor’s Challenge to Prevent Suicide Among Service Members, Veterans, and their Families. Albuquerque, N.M.; Billings, Mont.; Richmond, Va.; Helena, Mont.; Houston; Las Vegas; Los Angeles and Phoenix will form interagency teams to increase suicide prevention support for veterans in their communities. SAMHSA and VA identified these cities based on veteran population data, suicide prevalence rates and capacity of the cities to lead the way in this first year of the Mayor’s Challenge.

The goal of the Mayor’s Challenge is to reduce suicides among service members, veterans and their families using a public health approach to suicide prevention. The eight city teams will meet in Washington March 14-16, 2018 to develop strategic action plans to for their communities. The teams will contain members from community groups, local government, military and others. SAMHSA’s Service Members, Veterans, and their Families Technical Assistance Center will provide technical assistance to the teams.

There will also be a private screening of VOICE Award Winner, IRON WILL: Veteran's Battle with PTSD, during this event. IRON WILL is offered to communities across the country to assist in initiating conversations with service members, veterans and their families and communities.
