    The Roseburg VA Health Care System’s Suicide Prevention coordinators have one mission: save Veteran lives. While the coronavirus has caused necessary changes to some in-person care and services at RVAHCS’s five facilities across Southern Oregon, suicide prevention and mental health providers remain available for every Veteran facing crisis. September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and the RVAHCS Suicide Prevention team – which includes Suicide Prevention coordinators in Roseburg, Eugene and along the coast from Coos Bay to Del Norte County in California – wants to remind all Veterans, Veterans’ friends and family, advocates, community mental health care providers, and the entire community that Veterans in crisis are not alone – Veterans facing a mental health crisis will always have a lifeline to support and services to help them find a road to recovery. If you or a Veteran you know are facing a mental health crisis, resources are available to help. Following is a list of 24/7 resources available to help you find assistance:
