Frequently in the Veteran community we hear about another 22 Challenge. Whether it is 22 pushups, or 22 sit-ups for 22 days, it’s done to draw attention to the 22 Veterans daily dying by suicide. As the Challenge runs over those 22 days the Veteran suicide clock you see to the left continues to run, ticktock, ticktock,….. Every 48 minutes another Veteran will die by suicide. We use the number of 30 Veterans dying daily by suicide for the reasons explained to the left. After the group finishes the Challenge on the 22nd day, what happens on day 23? We must Stop The Clock!
What happens on Day 23?
Around the world, the brain injuries suffered from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are being healed. The treatment protocol currently used in the US is the use of medication and psychotropic drugs to MASK the symptoms, which causes the suicide clock to continue. #StopTheClock Team Veteran Foundation’s (TVF) mission is to open and prototype a Wellness Clinic.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is breathing 100% medical grade (MG) oxygen under controlled, increased atmospheric pressure while in either a single user (monoplace) or a multiple person (multiplace) chamber. Click here for additional information about HBOT.
With your help we can #StopTheClock of the Veteran suicide epidemic! To see the current numbers of Veteran suicides look at the counter on this site near the top to your left.
