The risk of suicide is 50% higher for veterans than for those who have not served. Since 2001, 114,000+ veterans have died by suicide. Without change, by 2030, 60,000 more lives will be lost. The problem is clear: The systems in place aren’t working. Getting help isn’t easy and trying to navigate a complicated maze of organizations and resources can be overwhelming when you’re in crisis.
Stop Soldier Suicide is the first national, veteran-founded-and-led nonprofit focused on military suicide prevention. What started as a grassroots effort in 2011 has grown into a thriving organization that’s driving change, building community and, most importantly, helping those who’ve served and sacrificed for our country. Our vision is to reduce veteran suicide to civilian parity by 2030, saving 2,400 lives per year.
Now, we're looking for an Account Executive to help take us to the next level.
