The Cause

PROJECT: VetRelief Suicide Prevention InitiativePROJECT: VetRelief Suicide Prevention Initiative

YOU can help us make a dent in the tragic statistic of 22 veteran suicides a day that happen throughout our nation.

Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) is a major factor in veteran suicides. There are many forms of assistance for PTS, whether it be counseling, group activities, service animals or just being in the right place at the right time. Look at how we are fighting to end veteran suicide.


There are already organizations who are providing their services for mental health to veterans and their families. In order to stop veteran suicide, PROJECT: VetRelief and The American Legion, Department of Florida believe that this community of organizations need to work together.

Using a vetting process to identify credible sources, Florida programs are invited to join our Coalition Network to come together to better serve our veteran community. Organizations will need a track record working with veterans, have result based references and values that align with our mission.

PROJECT: VetRelief will not only establish a statewide network, but also provide financial assistance to help with treatment, education and awareness of the current epidemic throughout the veteran community.
