Message from William:
For Vets, Military Service Members, and anyone looking for assistance for a Vet check-out the Crisis Line: 1-800-273-8255 OR https://www.veteranscrisisline.net/
For non-military Service Members looking for assistance, check out the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255 OR https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/
Purpose of our Push-ups: Getting connected and staying connected with one another and nature, in order to bring awareness and change to the fact that on average, 20+ Veterans take their own life every day.
Want to Help Out? Be there for someone else or others during their time of need, and then listen for how you can be of assistance if possible. That simple act of kindness can go a long way for someone suffering and struggling alone and in silence.
In addition, you can do your own push-ups (alone or with others), record them, and share them with your network, and/or share this post to help us keep this message and our efforts alive. For more information, check out our podcast and webpage titled “Conversations Around Veteran Suicide” (new episodes airing weekly throughout September):
