Vet Talk


"Any nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure."

“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country's cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.”
― Abraham Lincoln

Share Hope through Art is hoping to have a veteran outreach in the future because they truly do matter and I am beyond grateful for having the safety and freedoms that have been fought for in my country.

"By taking this pledge, you are making a commitment to increase awareness of mental health issues in general and prevent suicide for all Americans.

I, , pledge to do my part to help change the national conversation around mental health and suicide by:

  • Learning about suicide risk factors, protective factors, and warning signs;
  • Promoting and initiating conversations about PREVENTS’ resources, efforts and activities;
  • Supporting efforts where and how I can;
  • Sharing social media messages from PREVENTS;
  • Encouraging others to utilize PREVENTS’ resources;
  • Using safe messaging;
  • Inspiring other individuals to take the PREVENTS Pledge to REACH; and
  • Practicing and encouraging lethal means safe storage.

By signing this pledge, I understand that suicide prevention is a national public health challenge and that everyone has a role to play. I am committed to increasing awareness of mental health challenges and suicide prevention practices to reduce suicide for all Americans."
