Dr. Troiani on Panel Advocating
for Military Suicide Prevention
01.18.12

This week, the Adler School Military Psychology Student Association in association with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention hosted a high-level forum on suicide prevention in the military—featuring keynote presenters Maj. Gen. Mark Graham and his wife, Carol. Their son Jeffrey was killed in action in Iraq in 2004, months after their son Kevin, a senior ROTC student at the University of Kentucky, committed suicide. They now are nationally recognized leaders in the campaign for suicide prevention in the military, supporting awareness as the key to understanding and addressing mental illnesses most common in the military.

Joining the Grahams in presenting the issues surrounding mental health in the military and among veterans and their families were Steve Moore of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Illinois Chapter; clinician Joanna Buwalda, M.Ed. of The Soldiers Project, a private, non-profit, independent group of volunteer licensed mental health professionals that provides free counseling and support to military service members who have served or who expect to serve in the Iraq and/or Afghanistan conflicts; and Dr. Joseph Troiani, retired U.S. Navy commander and founding coordinator of the Adler School’s Psy.D. track in military clinical psychology.
