In 2012, the Department of Veterans Affairs’ study on veteran suicide concluded that 22 veterans a day take their own lives. That’s 8030 veterans annually from all eras of war including WW2, Korean, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. That’s more suicides annually than the total American deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) since the wars began. This is a shocking number that many find hard to believe.

Veterans are committing suicide in these high numbers attributed to triggering points:

  • Depression
  • Survivor’s guilt
  • Self-blame for mission failure
  • Impaired thinking caused by alcohol or substance abuse
  • An Altered worldview due to post-traumatic stress
  • Traumatic brain injury.

Since the inception of Active Heroes, the programs have adapted to identify the triggering points associated with veteran suicide. Active Heroes has national programs in every state and regional programs serving with locations.

  • Active Challenges – Free events, seminars and Team Leader trainings for every state.
  • Peer mentors, business partners and resources in every state
  • A Military Family Retreat Center located in Shepherdsville, KY
  • A Military Family Community Center in Louisville, KY
