I didn't seek help for my mental health, mostly due to the stigma within the military. After all, a warrior isn't supposed to show any sign of weakness.

I am working on an advocacy project with another student in my Mental Health Counseling Class for my Master's in Counseling Degree. We are wanting to gather information and have created this survey. The survey will only take a couple minutes to complete and is completely anonymous. Please help us out by completing the survey. We are hoping to follow through with this project and create a resource that is available to everyone in Wyoming and eventually throughout the United States. Feel free to share this with others. The more individuals that complete the survey the better.
I'd like to share a rather unusual, free, aces prevention resource...parenting tips bumper stickers. Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit organization, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to schools, organizations, agencies, clinics, businesses, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times! Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations start up and often a phone is used to take a pic of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see! Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.

On Sunday, Sept. 30, there will be two healing Eucharists at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Cheyenne at 8 and 10:30 a.m. with a focus on su***de prevention. It includes special prayers and anointing of holy oil. That evening at 5pm, they are offering QPR Su***de Prevention Training (Question, Persuade, Refer) with a meal. It's awesome that this church is stepping up to address this critical issue in a compassionate and faith-filled way.
