Nine9line Education Programs

Nine9line Education offers a variety of free classes to the community and Veterans, on topics such as Veteran culture, suicide prevention and awareness, and peer support. We also offer assistance to Veterans who are currently navigating the college or university realm. Our annual Education Symposium will offer many of these topics, plus more from dynamic public speakers. We strive to improve resources and provider skills to better serve our Veterans and families.
Nine9line Mental Wellness
Directed and managed by:
Peer support is integrated into every aspect of Nine9line, but we also offer targeted individual services. We are Veterans who have lived our struggles and use that experience to help others. We offer a holistic, alternative approach to peer support, which can include one-on-one support, ongoing peer mentoring, and crisis intervention. Holistic wellness takes all life factors into consideration, from emotional to social, to financial and occupational, and even physical and spiritual. Through Nine9line Education we will soon offer Wellness Skills Classes free to the community in each of these areas.
