Why these programs?

If you’ve served in the military or know someone who has, you’ll understand why SAFE Veterans is close to our hearts. A veteran is twice as likely to die from an accidental overdose than any other member of society, and for veterans and their families, the transition to civilian life can be particularly difficult, often losing the sense of purpose, camaraderie, and identity central to their military experience. Military culture also values self-reliance, which can lead to the perception that “getting help” is a weakness.

Our programs focus on prevention by addressing these concerns and preparing service members and their families with tools to move from coping to thriving.
