Warrior Call is a national initiative that fosters connectivity with servicemembers and veterans in an attempt to identify those who are isolating themselves and prevent suicide.
The physical and mental toll of service lasts long after the uniform is retired. Many of those who are suffering are not seeking help or treatment, or they may not even know how to vocalize what they are feeling. They may pull away from family and friends and isolate themselves, a known precursor to suicidal ideation. They may be suffering from undiagnosed traumatic brain injuries that mimics psychological ailments or PTSD.
By making a call and engaging in honest dialogue with a servicemember or veteran, Americans can connect individuals in need to available resources and services. Greater connection is key for these warriors – connected to one another, connected to family and friends, connected to people who care.
The Warrior Call initiative raises awareness of the urgent need for greater connectivity through our visits to military installations, our work with allied organizations, and through the annual National Warrior Call Day commemoration.
Our view is that there is no cookie cutter solution for curtailing suicides, that one person’s path back will be different than another’s and will require distinct remedies and approaches. One size does not fit all; one size fits one. But it all starts with connection.
