IRON MOUNTAIN –The Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center’s Suicide Prevention Program announces a series of workshops on Sept. 11 and 12 featuring artist Drew Cameron, of Combat Paper, who will help participants convert donated military uniforms into handmade paper.
Individual workshops will be held 9 to 11 a.m. CDT on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 11 and 12, in the medical center’s outpatient waiting area. A third session will be held from noon to 2 p.m. CDT on Wednesday in the outdoor pavilion behind the facility.
September is Suicide Prevention Month and the VA medical center’s Suicide Prevention Program encourages Veterans and all those who support veterans to seek out opportunities to make connections with one another. One of those opportunities can be found in participating in the meaningful experience of transforming something worn in military service into a piece of art.
