Our Mission Honoring Their Service and Leaving No One Behind
This foundation was created by People with PTSD for people suffering with PTSD and our veterans. Our mission is to treat the military condition with an arsenal of tools to assist in the recovery of America's finest Hero Warrior’s . The goal is to treat the veteran, spouse and family at little or no charge. We understand how difficult it is to reach out for help.
Many veterans are afraid to talk about their suffering because they're worried about losing their jobs or some of their rights. Don't worry! We are here to help. We do not share information with any other organizations. We do not want you to worry about filling massive amounts of paper work. Treating the veteran and the family as a whole unit is what we specialize in. Knowing that when a veteran leaves the service they have the option to use the V.A., or not. What about the spouse? They have nowhere to go unless they have private insurance including the kids of that suffering veteran. We are going to help!
At the PTSD Dog Foundation we treat all at little or no charge. Serving our fellow veterans and their families suffering from PTSD is what our primary focus is on. Our K9 program is one of the most effective in the country. It doesn't matter if you served in combat or peace time, you are a veteran either way and you are welcome at the PTSD Dog Foundation. You're only a soldier for a period of time but you're a veteran for the rest of your life!
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, resulting in 38,000 fatalities (in 2010), making it a significant public health priority.
According to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health ("Estimating the Risk of Suicide Among US Veterans," Kaplan et al.), an estimated 5,000 veterans die by suicide each year. The VA's Suicide Data Report, 2012 found a higher figure, 22 suicides per pay, or 8,000 per year. The VA study also recorded 11,000 non-fatal suicide attempts a year. A 2007 study in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health found that male veterans are twice as likely as their civilian counterparts to commit suicide. Suicide rates go up as people age, and more men than women die from suicide.
