More than 550 American servicemen and woman enter civilian life daily. The statistics also show that more than 22 veterans commit suicide a day according to a recent VA study. The need to provide veterans resources in their time of need is more apparent than ever.
"When we exit the military and need to find resources we are often left to browse the web or call a friend. "But", lamented Dr. Jeff Shuford, "We never
imagined the amount of time and frustration we would encounter searching endlessly to find help. This is the problem our app (Vets 22) aimed to solve."
The team at Tech From Vets is on a mission to solve the problem of veterans not easily being able to find necessary resources easily.
Veterans can download the Vets 22 app in the Google Play Store or visit the Vets 22 website to access resources 24/7 at no cost. The app has resources such as, housing resources, employment resources, crisis hotlines, fitness resources, discounts, chat, and health and wellness resources among others.
According to Drayton Florence, one of the developers behind Vets 22, "Often, the very best defense against depression and suicidal thoughts is a community of your peers and resources to help you in your time of need. In many circumstances, the veteran and their family needs help, support, and opportunity, we developed the Vets 22 app for that reason alone."
