The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that 20-22 Veterans per day die from suicide. This is one loss every 72-65 minutes, totaling 7,300-8,030 deaths per year, 18-20 percent of all suicides in the United States. The biggest age spikes are 18-29 years old and over 50 years old. Recent research shows that the first year after separation from the military is the highest spike.
To End Veteran Suicide in our nation through our focus areas of Education, Resources, Research, and Community.
Our friends and collaborators know us as NA2EVS and that we are not a Veteran Service Organization (VSO), rather a Veteran Community Organization (VCO)
where you need not be a Veteran to make a difference. We are not, focused on preventing suicide so that Veterans just survive, instead we expect them to THRIVE!
NA2EVS listens for and reliably delivers what makes a real difference in what Veterans are dealing with and what really matters to them. We invite you to be in alliance with us on this important mission, either as a collaborator or a Volunteer Champion.
