IDW and Hasbro Share Resources and Free Digital Issue during National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

Talk about class act move.

As September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, Hasbro and IDW Publishing have offered a digital issue of G.I.Joe #7 for free alongside other resources. Here’s the scoop –

During the month of September, IDW and Hasbro are offering G.I. Joe #7 for free digitally in observance of National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. This month is a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on suicide and mental health. We’re proud to share G.I. Joe #7, an issue in which Scarlett, suffering from the realities of a life of combat, recalls how she found her way to the burgeoning G.I. Joe movement. Issue #7 presents an honest look at the psychological impact of combat, with real depictions of overcoming the stigma around seeking mental health treatment, peer support, setbacks during treatment, and recovery. 

Special thanks to our consultants on this story: Patricia Watson, PhD and Peggy Willoughby, APR, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and U.S. Army SFC (R) Duane K.L. France, LPC.
