Suicides across the U-S have been on a steady rise with a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control showing a 24 percent increase between 1999 and 2014. Our nation’s veterans are especially at risk. According to the Dept. of Veterans’ Affairs, 20 veterans die from suicide every day. Nicole Langhorst understands the pain of those left behind, having lost her sister Michelle to suicide after Michelle served 9 years in the Army. Now she’s turning her loss into a mission to help others.

If you or a loved one is at risk of suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, open 24 hours a day.

For those grieving the loss of a loved one who served in the Armed Forces, emotional support is available through the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS).
