Like the Ice Bucket Challenge, another movement is sweeping the country but this time it is to bring awareness to the 22 Veterans that take their own lives every day. A startling, heartbreaking, and unnecessary number to witness.
#22KILL is an organization that is bringing attention to this harsh reality in the hopes of bridging the gap between Veterans and Civilians to create a community of support. They also provide suicide prevention through their partnerships with empowerment programs.
Every day a Veteran suffers from a mental related illness. These mental health issues can stem from Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, or the struggles and stresses of transitioning from military to civilian life.
We must show our Veterans that they are not alone in this fight and that we are here to support them. Go to www.22kill.com to learn more and see some of the videos below. To see more videos like these, CLICK HERE
