HOW WE HELP
"End Veteran Suicide!"
We will accomplish this goal by reducing the number of suicides per day until there are none.
Our Program: “Survivor Week”
We are providing a 5 day outpatient program that offers free PTSD and mTBI counseling services to any Veteran or Active Duty Service member. RUCK for 22 hosts this program quarterly in San Diego, CA through our partner at True Life Well Being. We place 6-10 applicants into our program at a time while covering the airfare, lodging, food, counseling, and team activities. After each day, we engage in fun activities like hiking, surf lessons, rock climbing, kayaking, paintballing and more! This is a great opportunity to be around like minded individuals and share the camaraderie that we have known and miss from our time in service.
We are a family here at Ruck for 22 and every soldier who has fought for our freedom is our family as well! After successful completion of our program, we will continue to follow up for one year to continue with your recovery. You will be paired with our outreach coordinator or a fellow vet through our mentorship program to help you find local resources in your area. We take care of our own and we stand behind the military motto, “No man left behind”.
As we continue to garner more public support and fundraising, it is our goal to host the 5 day program every month to reach more veterans who need help.
PTSD COUNSELING: PROFESSIONAL NETWORK
If you cannot attend our Survivor Week program, we can still help you!
Are you currently seeing a therapist for help with your PTSD or other service related issues? If you are currently paying out of pocket for that service, please complete our veteran application for services. Our goal is to help all Veterans and service members with the financial burden of paying out of pocket for mental health care.
We don’t want you to stop your road to recovery because you can’t afford to continue paying for the help. By submitting your application, we can reach out to your care provider and organize billing to our charity so you can continue your therapy. Once you have received approval from Ruck for 22, confirm with your professional and continue your path to success!
If you have questions about how this program works, please send us an email or give us a call and we will be glad to go over the details.
Veteran Charity Resources: One Unit Program
We have a vision of connecting all Vets with organizations that provide “Complementary Alternative Medicine” to help you on the road to recovery utilizing any means that may suit you. Do you like to ride a bike, work with horses, train a service dog, or learn a trade like farming?
There are many organizations across the U.S. that most people don't know exist. These organizations have had a phenomenal success rate with helping veterans and service members through PTSD and other service related issues. This alternative medicine style is different from traditional therapy and with the help of our outreach coordinator, you can find something near you that will hopefully peak your interests.
Our Vision and Goals
It is the goal of us here at Ruck for 22, Inc. to open our own facility here in California. The same support and counseling services offered through our partners at True Life Well Being will be offered directly through our organization. We are looking to partner with other non-profit charities in the Veteran and Military community to expand our offerings. While we specialize in the counseling and therapy side of getting back on track, we would like to partner with organizations that assist in community engagement, physical activity, and outreach. Our vision is to pull together a collective group of organizations to give the best care to our Veterans at the mental, physical, and emotional levels and succeeding in life post military.
