Suicide Prevention Resource for Veterans
One of the saddest parts of some of the issues (PTSD, TBI, etc.) facing our nation's
returning heroes, is the current spike in suicide rates.  This trend is one of the many things
weighing heavily on the hearts of the FOV staff right now.

If you, or any Veteran you know, is struggling with depression and is at risk for suicide,
please pass the following information along to them...

The National Suicide Hotline now has a special option just for Veterans.  When you call the
Hotline
(800-273-TALK), simply push "1" to be routed to someone who is experienced in
helping Veterans in crisis.

More emergency needs are also covered in our "
FOV's 911" section.

A "Sister" Organization
If you're looking for more information about PTSD and life after combat, you should check
out the
Vietnam Veteran Wives - an organization dedicated to helping Veterans of all wars
and their families.  If you haven't heard about the VVW yet, we strongly suggest that you
check them out!!

You won't want to miss this film!
Family Of a Vet is helping spread the word about an important new project. "From Hell to
Here" is a fictional short film journeying through the mind of a veteran battling
PTSD. The
film's goal is to help increase awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder among our
veterans and assist in starting a dialogue where there may not have been before, thereby
helping to end the stigma. Those of us living an "after combat" life know how important it is
to expand public knowledge about PTSD and its effects on our Veterans and their families.
We can't say enough about how excited we are to be supporting this project! To learn
more, go to
