Ask the Question Campaign Final Legislation
Governor Tom Wolf created a registry for veterans, family members and people who work with veterans to connect with information related to state benefits, programs, and services offered. All state agencies provide referrals to the registry via their websites and agency forms. Promoting the registry and better screening practices for current and prior service members is the fourth goal in the Statewide Suicide Prevention Plan. The registry is also prominently displayed across the footer of all pa.gov websites under "Join the Veterans Registry" and supplemented by the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veteran' Affairs PAVETConnect program, a grass roots, community-based outreach initiative focused on providing comprehensive resource and referral capabilities to service members, veterans and families.
