The experience of combat is a significant risk factor for the development of PTSD. War veterans have disproportionately high rates of PTSD. Veterans are 1.5 times more likely to die by suicide than Americans who never served in the military. For female veterans, the risk factor is 2.2 times more likely.
PTSD and depression rates among firefighters and police officers are nearly five times higher than the civilian population. Even when suicide doesn't happen, untreated mental illness can lead to poor physical health and impaired decision-making. You can help.
Female physicians are at higher risk of attempting suicide than men, showing rates over 250% higher among women and about 70% higher among men versus the general population. An estimated 300 to 400 doctors kill themselves each year, more than double that of the general population.
These suicide rates due to constant exposure to death, disease, and destruction and a level of stress most Americans will never understand deserve our greatest and most sincere dedication. Understanding these affects personally from service in both the US Army and as a first responder, we earnestly ask you to consider what you can do to help in this cause. One suicide from our finest WARRIORS is unacceptable.
We seek your support to provide free mental and physical health support to these WARRIORS. We believe non-traditional methods, such as those discussed below, can help those that serve.
100% of your donations go to support military veterans, active duty service members, first responders, and medical professionals who risk their physical lives and their mental stability in the service of the citizens of the United States of America.
All of our services are 100% free to all military members, first responders, and medical professionals. We want to serve you so you can continue to serve the great citizens of the United States of America.
