1:30pm – 7:30pm - Resource Fair
50 booths featuring local support organizations sharing resources and information

2:30pm & 7:00pm - “Project 22” Documentary Showings
In the United States alone, twenty-two Veterans commit suicide per day. Project 22 follows two combat-wounded Veterans on a mission to find hope. Riding motorcycles from San Francisco to New York, Daniel and Doc speak with Veterans, researchers, mental health clinicians and educators, as well as, a leading expert in Warrior Culture and Combat Stress. Asking hard hitting questions and opening up about their own struggles, Daniel and Doc will stop at nothing to reach tomorrow's twenty-two. The film is 1 hour and 45 minutes long.

5:00pm - 6:30pm - QPR Training
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.
