After a decade of war, the U.S. military and American veterans are experiencing an alarming rise in suicides, and experts believe many more are at risk. In 2012, September was named National Suicide Prevention Month; to keep the momentum going, The Huffington Post is presenting a special project on suicide prevention — Invisible Casualties — and we need your help.
If you or someone you know with military service has ever been affected by or considered suicide, we want to hear your story.
Give us a call at 860-348-3376, and you can record your story in your own words. Please be sure to include your name and phone number. Or you can send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know if you want to remain anonymous. We will not publish your name or any identifying details without your permission.
Need help? In the U.S., call 1-800-273-8255 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
