From our CEO, Chris Ford

I often get the same question.

“Do you really think military suicide is a solvable problem?”

Well, yes, I do. Which always prompts a follow up: “What makes you think you can solve it?”

Well, we’re different. The world doesn’t need another VSO that wants to “help veterans.” There are literally thousands of them.

We don’t “help veterans.” We save lives. We're different.

The further and faster we distinguish ourselves as different than the organizations that “help veterans,” the more impact our life-saving work will have.

This is the story of why we know that military suicide is a solvable problem. Take it in, process it, digest it, but stay hungry for more … we’re just getting started.

Yours in the fight,
Chris Ford
U.S. Air Force (Ret.)

Built to be Different

24/7 coverage that actually helps.
Crisis moments don't only happen from 9-to-5. We provide 24/7 access to actual human beings who are able to assist potential clients.

Consistent follow up, long term support.
Our care isn’t episodic. We’re not a hotline. We don’t put a band-aid on a problem. The service we provide to our clients doesn’t have a shelf life; we work with them for as long as it takes.

Data-driven care.
Talk and estimation aren’t good enough. We exhaustively track data points on our clients’ progress and wellbeing. We use advanced suicide risk stratification methods, such as CAMS and CASE, to inform best-in-class care that is vigorously vetted by experts.

Removing barriers.
There’s no one-size-fits-all solution. So we don’t hem clients into one way to request our help. We’ve fully embraced telehealth technology and video-based sessions as options for clients and we’ve built licensed cognitive processing therapy (CPT) and a life coaching team into our Wellness Center.
