Most of us hear that we lose an estimated 22 (in more recent reports 23) veterans each and EVERY day. What those of us in the Suicide Prevention field are still trying to work out are the why’s and the how’s of the issue.
The WAR HORSE is a comprehensive reporting database where users can submit information (which is then verified and fact checked by the War Horse team). This information is not limited to the tangible, it includes the experiences and emotions that influence so many today.
The War Horse is a project that evaluates the effects of war BY those who have been directly affected by war. I am Proud to be a part of this project because I know the effects that war can leave on not only a military veteran, but also their family, friends, and even acquaintances.
Imagine what we can do once we can look at the ripples that create PTSD, depression, mental illnesses, and so many other “side effects” of war. I encourage you all to take a second and watch this video that further explains the War Horse. Please help us make a difference in the lives of millions by sharing, donating to the Kickstarter, and simply talking about the issues we are working to figure out.
Thank you Thomas Brennan for all your hard work and dedication in making this project become a reality. I am truly honored to be a part of the team.
And thank you to those who take a second to think about all the lives this could benefit.
Suicide can be prevented. #arzerosuicide #zerosuicide
