There are many “causes” that result in a veteran committing suicide, and like the number of causes, there are just as many available answers to provide hope to that veteran in need.
Stop Soldier Suicide’s Local Chapters offer an opportunity for local communities to come together in support of soldiers and veterans. These Chapters are a grass-roots fundraising and awareness movement focused on building and informing communities about veterans’ issues as well as the non-profit resources available to soldiers/veterans. Stop Soldier Suicide is committed to building chapters around the United States that will:
- Be the local support “hub” for veterans and their families in their greatest hour of need, guiding them to mental health support and care.
- Be a local social meeting “place” via hosting events at local restaurants or other places conducive to a group meeting.
- Partner with and support other local veteran-themed nonprofit organizations in an effort to help them raise funds and awareness, including recruiting event sponsors that commit to donating 10% of proceeds to the featured veteran nonprofit at that nonprofit’s SSS event.
