Shoulder to Shoulder: I will never quit on life.
Suicide Prevention is a job for all of us. Don't leave the future of your loved one, your battle buddy, your friend to chance. They are too important.
- Invisible Wound
The Battle Buddies program of Invisible Wound is designed to assist and enhance the lives of Veterans with PTSD. We do this by training dogs and matching them to our individual Veterans’ needs. Estimates are that between one in eight and one in five of all Iraq War Veterans have some degree of PTSD. Two thirds of those who screened positive for PTSD are not receiving treatment. People who suffer from PTSD experience anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, flashbacks, and extreme wariness. It may manifest right away or show up months or even years later. Some of those who suffer from PTSD commit suicide. Battle Buddies has developed a program focused on addressing these issues. We bring together dogs and Veterans who want a canine companion for a better quality of life.
