Veteran '22' Information
22 - What does it mean? What can be done to help?
22 represents how many Veterans commit suicide every day. And that is just unacceptable.
IF YOU ARE HAVING THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE
OR OF HURTING YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE
DIAL 911 IMMEDIATELY
How can you help?
Check on your veteran friends now and then. Make a list and then write a little reminder on your calendar. Or put one on your phone. Whatever you do to remind yourself of things you don't do on a daily basis.
Even a quick text to say "Hi. Haven't heard from you in a while. How are you doing?"
EVERYONE should go to the 22 No More Facebook Page to see what they can - They have some awesome stuff happening!
