We are veterans, community leaders, educators, clergy, and first responders who took ownership of the problem of veteran suicides at the community level. By sharing resources and information at the community level we create organized outreach efforts to identify at-risk, isolated veterans and assist them in obtaining resources to improve their lives by encouraging their participation in community activities, organizations, and events promoting veterans’ wellbeing. Our efforts are fact and data-driven through informed dialogue with VA mental health, Department of Defense active military, Reserve and National Guard as well as State Health Department professionals and participation in the Governor’s Suicide Prevention Task Force.
Our efforts include outreach, peer to peer connections, group meetings reinforcing “you are not alone” concepts advancing the three key components of prevention through self-worth; community, faith, and resilience.
