Anonymous: We are advocates because there are 30+ suicides of veterans/ active duty soldiers daily. This is an EPIDEMIC and it has to stop. We lose more once they’re home than we lost on the battlefield.
One active Duty Soldier and 22+ Veterans take their own lives every day. We’re here to help stop this epidemic and get our military men and women the help and support they need.
To bring awareness to, and actively curb, the growing suicide epidemic among active and veteran service members.
We believe we all have a responsibility to help our brothers and sisters in arms who suffer from the deepest, invisible wounds of war BEFORE they feel their only choice is taking their own lives.
Stop Soldier Suicide was founded and is led by ex- and active-duty military. We have a personal understanding of what our brothers and sisters are going through. The red tape, the fears, the combat, the deployments, the “coming home.” And as such, we know the problems and issues of suicide feelings are too complex to be helped with a single answer. It might be a financial, housing, relationship, job or substance abuse issue driving feelings of overwhelment or depression. It could be physical issues of PTSD, TBI, loss of limb or paralysis. Our unique approach means every individual gets the right help and care for their situation. Website
