On Monday, I will be joining the Your Life Counts and heading up their Military Mental Health directorate as part of the formal alliance between the Canadian Veterans Advocacy and this nationally recognized suicide prevention organization, Every life count, but after the scourge of military and veterans taking their lives, we are striving to make a definitive impact and, in time, provide the profession, DISCRETE suicide prevention resources 24/7. Should the catastrophic event transpire, their will be, and is, a family based support network to assist during the grieving process, no matter how long it is. We will fulfill the obligation, we will accept our Sacred Obligation to those who have served and are suffering from mental wounds.
Our immediate focus will be on implementing proactive campaign to END the stigma with in the military, the need for self identification and equally important, ensuring DND and VAC have the resources for you when you do and the healing process begins and thought of suicide are banished.,
Your life counts, no matter how dark the place you are in, your life counts.
The Canadian Veterans Advocacy Team.
