Ruck for the fallen is dedicated to lowering the suicide rate of our military veterans and first responders. We are working to form a mentorship program that will enable our Peer Mentors to assist individuals as they are dealing with suicide or PTSD. Mentors will be certified and available for anyone that needs an individual to speak to. Peer Mentors will be available as veterans, first responders and civilians. Our Ruck For The Fallen Staff will all be certified and will be available immediately if you need assistance right away. We will always be here to help you at any time, day or night.

Please consider taking these courses to help understand and identify the signs of suicide. These courses will help our peers know what to do in a crisis emergency or if they suspect a person is considering suicide. We ask that you send us picture or screenshot of your certification to our email once completed so we can keep that in our records!
(this course has reduced its cost due to COVID-19 to help combat isolation suicide)
