While suicide is often thought of as an individual problem, it has devastating impacts
on families, loved ones, and communities making it a public health issue. Our goal is to
reduce Veteran suicide across Texas through collaboration with national, state, and
local partnerships and initiatives bringing together many different resources,
perspectives, and strategies aimed at saving the lives of Texas Veterans.
