Veterans Suicide Prevention
You were not alone then. You are
not alone now. There are 20 million veterans who would give their lives to save yours. PLEASE don't waste your life.
After a traumatic experience, it's normal to feel frightened, sad,
anxious, and disconnected. But if the upset doesn't fade and you feel
stuck with a constant sense of danger and painful memories, you may be
suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It can seem like
you'll never get over what happened or feel normal again.
This is why we have created the "Buddy Check/Chat" program. Veterans
like you, that have shared a similar experience or trauma in one of our
nation's many conflicts, are available to talk with you openly and
privately and help you deal with issues associated with your experiences.
If you are struggling, if you are in pain, or if you just need to talk to someone who understands, please call.
