A Message From Chris Watson

You know what's highly ineffective? Sharing something on your wall and then not doing anything about it. I'm taking part in the ‪#‎22in22Challenge!
My goals are:
-to tag 22 people in this challenge
-to raise $220 to donate
- to run 2 miles a day for 22 days to raise awareness.

Here's why:
Every day more than 22 Veterans and 1 active duty Service member take their own lives each day.

It has to stop. These men and women served their nation and now we must serve them.

We are the first national Veteran-founded and led non-profit organization dedicated to preventing suicide in all branches of the active duty and Veteran community, as well as helping the families of those who reach out.

We understand the problems and issues of military suicide are too complex for a single answer. It might be a financial, housing, relationship, job or substance abuse issue driving feelings of being overwhelmed or depressed. It could be PTS (Post Traumatic Stress). It could be physical issues of TBI, loss of limb or paralysis. We find out what is triggering the stress and ideations of suicide and then work to help the person find relief using our vast resources and connections. We find the right answer for each person. But we don't stop there. We continue to follow up and help as long as is needed. And that makes us truly unique in our approach.

We want to help before a crisis situation arises. Before the stress drives someone to the ragged edge. We also work to raise awareness of the need to de-stigmatize asking for and getting help. These men and women are not "crazy." They are in pain and need us to guide them to relief and hope. And we need your help.

We need funding to continue to operate our Contact Center and expand it to 24/7 operation. With more and more reaching out for help, we simply must be available to do this important work for those who have served and are serving still.
