LLCC will host veterans suicide task force hearing on May 2

Lincoln Land Community College will host a Veterans’ Suicide Task Force Hearing, an initiative lead by State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, and State Senator Tom Cullerton, D-Villa Park, on Monday, May 2 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Trutter Center, Springfield campus.

The Task Force will gather information from veterans, organizations and companies on how the state can more effectively meet the needs of the veteran community. This includes focusing on all aspects of a veteran’s support network, employment, and support for the family of veterans, in addition to their time spent in combat. The hearings scheduled to take place across the State will focus on the mental health challenges facing veterans from all eras of service.
