Hundreds of America servicemen leave the military every day to return to civilian life. Most service men and women return wounded in some way or another. Many will face the challenges of finding a new job, learning new skills, while adjusting to life at home.
The QPR course is a simple 3 step program that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Question, Persuade, and Refer can be trained in to help people recognize the warning signs of a suicide to help save many lives
Transition GPS also known as the Transition Assistance Program is a course that helps retired servicemen to successfully re-enter civilian life. This course gives them the tools and self confidence to build on the skills their need to be successful in the work force, pursue a higher education or continue with technical training.
We have had 15+ years of continuous warfare that has been both offshore and onshore. There is a significant increase in the amount of post traumatic stress disorders from combat related war. We are not properly catering to these needs of the men and women for when they return home."
Statistics show that in our country, since 1999 US military duty related deaths are at approximately 5,275 and our veteran suicide deaths are at approximately 128,500. As a country, we can no longer tolerate such a tragic loss of life. This is all of our business to force the necessary changes to ensure the best training and preparation possible and to support them better through their entire military journey from serving, to injury, through transition. We want to see our government, military branches, VA and communities take better care of Americas heroes! This has become my new mission, join me on this journey.
