Founded by USAA, Face the Fight is a coalition of corporations, foundations, nonprofit and veteran-focused organizations joined together to raise awareness and support for veteran suicide prevention.
Our UT Health San Antonio team is honored to serve as an academic partner to USAA in Face the Fight. Since 2021, our team has guided the strategic approach for grantmaking. We provide technical assistance to Face the Fight grantee organizations, aiding them in implementing new suicide prevention programs, interventions, and examining program outcomes. The UT Health San Antonio team will work alongside grantees to implement and adapt evidence-informed strategies to their unique contexts, thereby maximizing the effectiveness of the initiative in preventing veteran suicides.
Crisis Response Plan (CRP) Training
Our UT Health San Antonio team has received funding from Face the Fight to conduct monthly workshops in Crisis Response Planning for Suicide Prevention. These workshops are offered at no cost and are open to any individual who supports veterans in work, as a volunteer, or peer, including veteran-serving mental health clinics and allies of veterans.
