Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 15, 2009
Vets Prevail (http://www.vetsprevail.com/), an online resiliency training program from Prevail Health Solutions LLC, is proud to announce that it will be working with The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/Veterans/Default.aspx) to promote emergency care for veterans in crisis. Veterans in emotional distress are encouraged to seek help by calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or engaging in real-time chat with trained counselors on the Lifeline website.
Prevail Chief Executive Officer Richard Gengler stated, "As a veteran-owned and operated company, Prevail Health Solutions is committed to the total well-being of our returning servicemen and women, and we applaud the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's efforts to ensure that all veterans in need receive the proper mental health care they deserve."
The Vets Prevail training tool, built on a cutting edge, patent-pending technology platform, is tailored specifically to today's veterans, creating interactions that are both personalized and engaging. These interactions come alive as the veteran members receive live, instant-messenger chats from veteran mentors and experienced trainers. Vets Prevail's novel solution offers a convenient and anonymous training experience, helping modern warriors navigate a difficult transition back to civilian life upon their return from Iraq and Afghanistan.
All too often, the return home for today's veterans presents serious challenges. Over a third of the returning warriors are suffering from combat stress, depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or re-assimilation issues, while the suicide rate among veterans has climbed to a three-decade high. Accordingly, Prevail Health Solutions places the utmost emphasis on the safety of its members and works to refer veterans who may be in crisis to appropriate third-party resources for immediate help.
Vets Prevail has received financial support from the National Science Foundation's Small Business Innovation Research program, which has given rise to some of the most innovative American companies. Additionally, Prevail research also is supported by the McCormick Foundation in partnership with Major League Baseball's "Welcome Back Veterans" initiative.
