We are dedicated to ending veteran suicide. Through their dedicated service, Warriors have earned access to many veteran service organizations. Veterans are encouraged to use the following resources for any mental and/or physical assistance they may need.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
Instant, confidential access to a 24/7 chat with a VA responder. Open to active duty military and veterans.
Talk Now to a Fellow Veteran
For veterans who may be on the verge of a crisis, or who want to talk to a fellow veteran about their struggles, there are two resources:
The Fire Watch is Northeast Florida’s fight to end veteran suicide. They are uniting our War Fighters and allies to swiftly activate local assets, stand watch, and build a life-saving network. They call it the ‘Watch Stander’ program. To date, no city, county, or state has systemically reduced its veteran suicide rate. This effort is the first of its kind in the country.
This guidance applies to veterans whose characterization of discharge was under other than honorable conditions and who assert that they suffered PTSD or related disorders they believe influenced the misconduct that led to their release.
Education & Employment
Folds of Honor ensures that families who’ve sacrificed so much for our country receive the education and opportunities they deserve. Whether it’s K-12th grade or higher education, we believe the cost of pursuing their academic dreams should not be an additional burden.
