Courage to Call is a new Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) program located in San Diego, California, which is providing services to those who have served in any Military or Guard (both active and former) and their Families and loved ones.
They have a Peer Outreach & Family Support Staff who are veterans and military family members. They stand ready and willing to help.
Their 24/7 Helpline is entirely staffed by veterans who have recently served in the military who:
- Have a first hand understanding of the current rigors of the military and military family life, and transitioning off active duty.
- Help individuals find mental health information, support, access, and/or referrals throughout the County of San Diego.
- Link individuals and families to prevention-oriented services and other mental health resources to help minimize further challenges.
For Helpline information and support, call (877) MyUSVet, (877) 698-7838
Note: I found out about this program while visiting the Veterans Village of San Diego website. They are a great organization helping veterans and their families, with a particular focus on helping homeless veterans.
