By donating time and expertise, Cogent Analytics is mentoring Objective Zero to help provide a sustainable base from which to increase awareness and bring focus to the very real and somber issues many vets are struggling with every day.
“With roughly 20 veterans committing suicide every day, at a rate 21% higher than the civilian average; it’s clear more must be done to help our veterans,” says Blake Bassett, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Objective Zero. Our mission and belief is that veteran suicide can be prevented through the simple act of listening. Objective Zero has been created as a Mobile App and 501(C) (3) nonprofit that anonymously connects veterans to suicide prevention resources and a community of veterans, counselors, and concerned citizens.
The Objective Zero Foundation enhances social connectedness and access to suicide prevention resources to prevent veteran suicide. Succeeding where others have failed, the Objective Zero Foundation is a mission-driven tech start-up that leads the pack in the fight against veteran suicide, connecting every veteran in America to suicide prevention support and resources.
