Welcome to PSVF
22 Veterans commit suicide every day, about 1 every 65 minutes
Purple Star Veterans and Families honors active duty service members and veterans lost to suicide as a result of PTS, TBI, drugs and alcohol, accidents, and other service-related mental health issues.
We also aim to strengthen the combat transition and military to civilian life reintegration safety net for our nation’s active duty service members, veterans, and their immediate and extended families.
Dear Friends of PSVF,
The following video is intended to raise awareness and bring much needed attention to the necessity of prevention and early intervention resources and programs for Veterans who are transitioning from military to civilian life, and their families.
Specifically, this video is a powerful and clear example of the need for a National Network of Veteran Peer Mentors and Mentoring Organizations. Purple Star Veterans and Families has already begun the development of this network of hundreds of organizations; to establish best practices, and to organize a unified voice that can help make change happen on a national level.
We invite you to learn more about PSVF, What We Do, and How We Do It. If you would like to make a donation to support our programs, please click here. If you have any questions, or would like to learn more about the information, please contact us.
