The second episode in our new podcast A World Where LivingWorks is “Protecting Our Protectors”. This episode is all about living well in the defence and military communities and asking that all important question, when it comes to suicide and mental health, how are we protecting the lives of those who protect ours?
Host Kim Borrowdale speaks with Sergeant First Class Chris Allen, Suicide Prevention Program Manager for the South Carolina Army National Guard in the USA, and Dr. Stephanie Hodson, National Manager of Open Arms, a Veterans and families counselling organization in Australia.
Both are Veterans and both their organizations use LivingWorks programs, as well as others, to keep their communities safe from suicide. In the podcast they both zeroed in on some similarities they see when it comes to those who serve in the military regardless of which country you’re from.
