We all know the numbers on the suicide rate among our service members. The 22 a day figure only scratches the surface of what is known, and does not include the suicides that happen on active duty bases, or with those not within the VA system.
The factors leading up to that are many and complex, from the overuse of narcotics, to the unresolved consequences of trauma, to loss of hope, and to a host of personal and environmental factors that result in tragedy.
At Healing Warriors Program, we work closely with our fellow community partners to be part of the Service Member’s path to healing through hope that pain can be alleviated, that trauma can heal, and that together we can find restoration of quality of life.
The care of our Service Members is our number one objective and we make our decisions by asking the question, “What is best for the veteran?”
