We are the first national veteran-founded-and-led nonprofit dedicated to preventing military suicide.

Stop Soldier Suicide was founded by U.S. Army veterans Brian Kinsella, Nick Black, and Craig Gridelli in 2010 amid the worst suicide crisis our military has ever seen.

What we do

We empower the military community by providing free resources and support to all past and present military and their families through an established, comprehensive, trusted network of individuals and organizations that meet the complex needs of the military community and are capable of anticipating and mitigating suicide risk factors, promoting resiliency, inspiring hope, and encouraging healing and personal growth.

Our resources include:

  • Mental health
  • Emergency financial aid
  • Housing assistance
  • PTSD and/or TBI referrals
  • Alternative therapies (HBOT, art therapy, equine therapy, etc.)
  • Education / GI Bill assistance

…and much more.

Why it matters

On average, 22 veterans and active duty service members are lost to suicide every day — and hundreds of thousands more struggle with mental and physical issues. This crisis impacts military from every generation and branch of service, as well as their family members.
