    To promote awareness of the issues surrounding Veterans suicide as well as healthy ways to promote positive mental health through physical health and wellness. Our goal is provide important resources to student Veterans and peers regarding organizations that provide physical health and wellness programs. The "22" number was part of a statistic that was originally released through a case study by the Department of Veteran Affairs in 2012, but since then they released an updated study showing the rate had fallen to "20" Veteran suicides per day.
