Life has its challenges. You don’t have to solve them alone. That’s true whether it’s an everyday struggle, or something more complicated.
This site was designed for Veterans to proactively seek support and resources.
You’re not alone. You’ve got this. Don’t wait. Reach out.
Veterans Affairs began using the REACH VET program in 2017 to help identify veterans receiving VA care who may be at increased risk of suicide. The program uses a predictive model that analyzes veterans’ health records to identify those who may benefit from enhanced clinical care—like specialty care or additional mental health services.
We found that REACH VET identified veterans not flagged by other screening programs. VA noted other benefits, like reductions in documented suicide attempts.
VA plans to evaluate how to increase the impact of REACH VET by targeting outreach to veterans who show signs of disengaging from VA care.
