Suicide

Oct 2017 | | |

For nearly a decade, IAVA and the veteran community have called for immediate action by our nation’s leaders to appropriately respond to this crisis of 20 service members and veterans dying every day from suicide. IAVA members are at the forefront of this crisis. Every year we see a rise in the percent of IAVA members who know a post-9/11 veteran that has died by suicide or attempted suicide. This year is no different. This is a time to redouble our efforts as a nation and answer the call to action. And IAVA will continue to maintain our leadership on that charge.

“Posters and pretty speeches are not going to change a thing, they never have. A complete change in culture and in society's response to the issue and compassion for those who suffer is what will really make a difference.”
