May Luncheon: Veteran Suicide Prevention

My Friends,


As we draw near the end of our luncheon series before the summer break, we have a great May event scheduled for our Society.

Monireh Moghadam is a clinical social worker with the Portland VA Medical Center.  She will join us to talk about her role as a Suicide Prevention Coordinator and the much needed VA Program for Suicide Prevention.  Please come to learn more about this critical topic that has come to the forefront of veteran mental health issues, how we all can identify a Veteran that may be at risk for suicide, and what they can do when we identify a Veteran at risk.

About our speaker:

Monireh earned her Master of Social Work (MSW) from the University of California, Los Angeles. She spent the next twelve years working in various mental health settings, including jail mental health services, the California state hospital system, and emergency department psychiatry before relocating to Portland, OR in 2009. Monireh continued her work in emergency psychiatric services before joining the Portland VA in early 2012, where she has since worked as one of the Suicide Prevention Coordinators. Monireh is licensed as a clinical social worker in both Oregon and California, the latter which she retains in the unlikely event the sun summons her back down south.


Please join us if you are in the Portland area on the 21st:

1) Date: Wednesday, 21 May
2) Location: The Old Spaghetti Factory, 715 SW Bancroft St., Portland (off MacAdam Blvd just south of the Aerial Tram)
3) Time: 11:45 AM
4) Lunch is $15 for all


For planning purposes, please RSVP me if you can attend. A quick email reply is fine. As always, your guests and friends are always welcome to join us.


Go Army!
