Who is this? It’s my buddy Cameron. We were Marines together. He’s the reason we are here. Because when he killed himself, I had a Popeye moment. “I had all I can stand, and I can’t stand anymore.” So, we started Combat Counselors. The irony is if I had started this years ago when I
Combat Counselors is a non-profit on a mission to stop veteran suicide. We intend to do this by quite literally stopping these suicides through direct, physically present intervention.
The VA reports two-thirds of all Veteran suicides are committed with a handgun. We want to identify Veterans who are struggling and help them before they have a gun in their hands. If we can’t, we want to be physically present to stop any veteran from making the ultimate decision to end their life.
We quite literally need an army. We need an army of volunteers, therapists, counselors, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists who can help veterans. We also need an army of those who can provide support in any way. Our plan for carrying out this mission is as follows:
Phase 1 involves raising the capital for developing an app where we can provide veterans with access to no-cost text and video therapy. Additionally we will roll out an online community for veterans only known as “Inside The Wire”.
Phase 2 will be building more capital to create a network of individuals who can give support through the app 24/7/365, any time a veteran may need access to our services.
Phase 3 is developing and implementing a network of suicide intervention trained former combat soldiers that can be deployed at a moment’s notice anywhere in America through a system of private pilots.
We will continue our mission until the war on Veteran suicide is won.
Veteran suicide happens at alarming rates, and while we carry the name “combat,” we won’t limit our services to only those who saw combat in a foreign land.
We’re in awe of your immense support. Thank you so much! We pledge to use your donations to make a difference in the lives of at-risk veterans and bring them the help they so desperately need. We still need your help. Click here to sign up and learn more about how we are helping veterans.
Over the last ten years, more than 60,000 Veterans have committed suicide, according to a 2016 Veterans Affairs Department study. Suicide, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Depression are epidemic within our Veteran Community. We must stop this. Combat Counselors plans to do just that. We won our battles; now we must win the war.
