How RAGFriday is Helping Eradicate Veteran Suicide

The Rag Friday Foundation was founded by Rapid Application Group to eradicate veteran suicide.

EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

  • A study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration revealed that only 50 percent of returning vets who need veteran mental health treatment will receive services that they need.
  • More veterans have passed away from suicide than have been killed in action.
  • Veteran suicide is a national concern.
  • Veterans have a much higher rate of suicide than the population at large.
  • Veterans are nearly twice as likely as non-veterans to take their own lives.
  • There are 22 veteran suicides a day. Every 80 minutes.

Let's end veteran suicide.

#RAGFriday aims to eradicate veteran suicide by helping veterans find their new mission, aiding their transition into their new identity, making sure they have a solid support group, and checking in on them after the three previous steps have been completed.

It all starts with believing things can change.

What does #RAGFriday mean to you?

We want #RAGFriday to symbolize community, strength and most of all, hope. 

In the midst of the daily chaos, let us all take a moment to honor those who are affiliated with military life in any way, shape, or form. The sacrifices that veterans, active duty, and their families have made are the reasons why we get to live in the land of the free.

Here's a genuine thank you to everyone who has supported our social mission thus far and a giant welcome to those who wish to join. Contact marketing@rapidapplicationgroup.com to join #RAGnation!
