Suicide Prevention Program

Since 2007 all VA Facilities have implemented a Suicide Prevention Program under the leadership of a Suicide Prevention Coordinator (SPC) at the local level. The SPCs facilitate the implementation of suicide prevention strategies through education, monitoring, and coordination of care. The program includes identifying and tracking patients assessed to be high-risk for suicide, conducting suicide prevention training for facility staff and community members, and providing enhanced care and support to Veterans who are vulnerable for suicidal behavior. Our staff also provides close follow for any high-risk Veteran with missed appointments. Dayton VAMC's Suicide Prevention Team consists of:

  • Suicide Prevention Program  Ext. 2675
  • Suicide Prevention Pager #607

The Suicide Prevention Team's offices are located at the Dayton VAMC in Building 302 in Suite 241. If you need help, please dial 1-800-273-TALK (8255) press "1" to reach the VA hotline. You will be connected to a trained mental health professional. Our mission is to provide immediate assistance to anyone seeking mental health services. Call for yourself, or someone you care about. Your call is free and confidential. Visit the Veterans Crisis Line.
