MENTAL HEALTH

  • 2.1 million vets (half of those in need) received mental health treatment from the VA between 2006 & 2010.

Struggle In Silence

Many veterans have seen things none of us ever want to see and often come home to find themselves in harm's way again fighting a new enemy. 

 

The VA is working hard to improve the mental health service they provide, but more must be done.

 

 We must eradicate the epidemic of veteran suicide.

Our country needs the National Center for Healthy Veterans to alleviate the behavioral and mental health challenges our veterans face. The NCHV is a comprehensive solution that leverages private sector resources, expertise and proven faith-based solutions.

DONATE

Today, approximately 22 veterans will lose hope and take their own lives. 

 

Donate today to the National Center for Healthy Veterans and make an immediate impact so we can return healthy veterans to America.
