Rocky Mountain Short Takes on Suicide Prevention:
Cards for Connection with Katie Juhasz
7 April 2020
This week Adam talks with Katie Juhasz from the National Center for PTSD. They talk about a new product called Card for Connection. Cards for Connection is a free resource that puts simple coping skills and VA phone numbers directly into Veterans’ hands. Originally created for Veterans who had experienced homelessness, the card deck has now been updated with information for all Veterans.
The 52 cards in the deck have easy-to-implement coping skills and important phone numbers, such as the Veterans Crisis Line and the Help for Homeless Veterans line.
As a result, Veterans playing a game of cards read positive affirmations, reminders to breathe, and encouragement to make a connection with others.
