Live To Fight One More Day, Every Day
HELP22 is a not-for-profit organization that provides coaching, counseling, therapy and encouragement to veterans, in order to increase their resiliency—specifically, their capacity to stop suicidal thinking and/or resist acting on thoughts of suicide.
HELP22 believes that those who join the military are mission-driven people. We seek to galvanize their will to survive the battles they face with depression, despair or severe disruptions in their lives with a direct challenge:
Live to Fight One More Day, Every Day
We re-define suicidal thinking as an invading enemy, demanding surrender.
HELP22 Heroes Vow to Live Through Depression, Despair or Disruption
We believe that veterans confronting depression, despair or severe disruption in their lives can benefit from being part of a nationwide veterans’ movement to never surrender one’s life, part of smaller groups in which they encourage one another to “fight one more day, every day,” and participants in one-on-one sessions with coaches, counselors or therapists who reinforce the commitment to embrace that challenge, even in the face of severe emotional pain.
We believe that celebrating the refusal to surrender to depression, despair or disruption is both appropriate and important at intervals of 30, 100 and 365 days, all the while never forgetting the underlying and fundamental challenge to live one more day.
We believe that defining depression, despair and disruption as a powerful, foreign invading force that must be defeated daily can activate the warrior inside the veteran and unleash his or her tenacity, resiliency and will to live.
HELP22 is a network of volunteers skilled in listening who offer their assistance to veterans free of charge. They proactively impart hopeful, inspirational messaging to fuel resiliency.
HELP22 is recruiting life coaches, counselors, therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists to donate their time on the 22nd of every month, or at any convenient time for you, to provide encouragement and support to America's veterans. You'll be a part of a team striving to be of profound service to those who served America.
The men and women of our nation’s military do everything they can to keep our families safe.
But when they need help, it can be hard for them to ask for it.
Help22 is working to give our nation’s veterans and active duty military the mental healthcare they need. But our efforts are only as strong as your support.
The purpose of #HELP22 is to reinforce the will to live among our veterans and military service members through coaching, counseling, and mentoring.
