Trained People Save Lives
Every day is Veteran's Day at AFM. With more than 22,000 Veterans living in our hometown community and outreach nationwide our primary focus continues to be on the Veteran Community. Additionally, we have worked with the 101st Airborne, ARMEDCOM, MI Command and many other units to strengthen those that wear our nation's cloth.
We are pleased to offer Georgia POST approved workshops in suicide intervention and mental health first aid for our local law enforcement community. Additionally, we work closely with local law enforcement in our hometown community of Fayette County to provide Crisis Intervention support and LOSS Teams (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) for those who have experienced loss.
Mental Health Community
We are building bridges of care through partnerships with our friends in the mental health community. A huge thanks to those who have reached out to join the community network that is strengthening individuals and families. We also provide CEUs through NASW and the LPCA Georgia Chapter.
Civic & Corporate Community
