SUICIDE AWARENESS

If you have had in the past, or currently have thoughts of hurting yourself or another person please know that your AFW2 Support Team is here to support you.  We will refer you to appropriate agencies that can help you and/or your family.  You can also check out the attached resources below or call the Veterans Crisis Hotline at 1-800-273-8255, Option 1.

Lastly, you can utilize the Veterans Crisis Line website and use their resource look up application searching for a suicide prevention coordinator by inputting your zip code. From there your local VA Suicide Prevention Coordinator’s contact information will populate.

SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY (SSDI)

Review the SSDI brochure and handouts below for service members with medical conditions who are limited from working due to their current medical condition. If you believe this is an entitlement you may be interested in applying for, call 1-800-772-1213 and identify yourself as an AF Wounded Warrior (you will get priority) and complete the telephone interview. In-turn, they will send you documents in the mail to fill out to complete the application process. You can also apply online at SocialSecurity.gov.

 

Please understand that this process is very lengthy and cumbersome. If you apply while still overseas you will more than likely be referred to your local embassy for assistance and they will also need a stateside address before the application is finalized.

PEER FORUM

During these forums, military caregivers will have the opportunity to connect with peers, share best practices, learn about additional resources for active duty, Guard, and Reserve families, and encourage others. The audio capabilities will be through a teleconference line; the phone number for participants to join will be provided to caregivers once R.S.V.P.s are received. 

 

To confirm attendance, we are asking Caregivers to R.S.V.P. via email:

osd.caregiver@mail.mil and provide us with their current location. Any participants that may be willing to aid with language translation services please include this information in your R.S.V.P.
