The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that a Veteran takes his or her own life about once every 65 minutes on average, accounting for some 7,300 suicides per year, nearly 20 percent of all suicides in the United States.  The biggest age spikes are around 60 (our Vietnam Veterans) and our 18-25 yr. old (our Recent Veterans).  See our press page for related items on Veteran Suicide.
Our Mission: 
To end Veteran suicide in our nation through our focus areas of research, education, resource provision, and community collaborations.
Our Vision:
To create a network of committed, trained, and recognized volunteer champions actively engaged in addressing the alarming concern of suicide deaths among Veterans.  We will impact this concern and provide resources to Veterans, Families and Survivors through the main focus areas of the Alliance.
