About Stop Soldier Suicide

Veterans and service members are at 50% higher risk of suicide than their peers who haven’t served. We’re solely focused on changing that through an innovative suicide intervention model driven by evidence, science and data.


Our team is small, but we’re growing aggressively to meet the demand for our services and accomplish our goal of reducing the military suicide rate by 40% by 2030. That means empowering 2,400 mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters or battle buddies with a brighter future each year.


We serve all branches of the military and all generations, regardless of discharge status. We’re not government funded, but not a single client will ever see a bill for our services.

Not all veterans and service members need our services, but there are still too many who do. This is an opportunity to build brighter futures for men and women who have willingly sacrificed for our country.


We don’t “help veterans.” We save lives. If you’re up for the challenge, we’d love to speak with you.

Thank You
