Connect to Courage

Tuesday, March 28
Fox Cities Performing Arts Center - Appleton

Join FVTC Veterans Services as we raise awareness and learn about the plight and challenges of our veterans. Find resources and educational tools to assist veterans, their families, and our community.

1:30-7:30 p.m. Resource Fair 
50 booths featuring local support organizations sharing resources and information

2:30 p.m. & 7 p.m. “Project 22” Documentary Showings:
In the United States alone, 22 Veterans commit suicide per day. Project 22 follows two combat-wounded Veterans on a mission to find hope. Riding motorcycles from San Francisco to New York, Daniel and Doc speak with Veterans, researchers, mental health clinicians and educators, as well as, a leading expert in Warrior Culture and Combat Stress. Asking hard hitting questions and opening up about their own struggles, Daniel and Doc will stop at nothing to reach tomorrow's twenty-two. The film is 1 hour and 45 minutes long.

5-6:30 p.m. QPR Training 
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR, 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.
