We developed Operation ReachOut™ with the goal to save at least one life. We are saving hundreds. It's an incredible feeling, to make a difference in someone's life.

Since the launch of Operation ReachOut™, Military Community Awareness, Inc. has received numerous extraordinary reviews for its suicide prevention app, and has been ranked number two among the world's leading mental health apps by PsychCentral.com. It was also listed among the best depression apps of the year by Healthline.com. The app has been downloaded over 2,700 times across Android and Apple devices, according to the latest statistics compiled by the company. The free app was designed to help prevent the alarming number of suicides among military personnel, family members and veterans.

“We developed Operation ReachOut™ with the goal to save at least one life,” said Jonathan Werz, CEO of Military Community Awareness, Inc. “We are saving hundreds. It's an incredible feeling, to make a difference in someone's life.”

Operation ReachOut™ surpasses traditional suicide prevention apps, which mostly provide information and resources without much interaction, in its ability to assist individuals in real time. Lawrence E. Shapiro, an international expert on emotional intelligence, headed the creation of the new app. As a leading specialist on the use of technology for assistance of mental health issues, he incorporated many useful features into the app, including a set of activities to keep a self-destructive person communicating with others, a set of video interviews with those concerned about their own mental health, a set of video interviews with those concerned about loved ones, an internal contact list of responsive friends and family, a pre-loaded and tailored list of suicide prevention hot-lines, and a resource list with active links to sites with more information about mental health.

Many review websites have ranked and supported Operation ReachOut™, including PsychCentral.com and Healthline.com which rank the app among the top 10 mental health apps.
