PSA Narrated by Tom Hanks Encourages Public to Take Note of Veterans at Risk for Suicide

"No Veteran Left Behind" campaign supported by The Department of Veterans Affairs and Johnson & Johnson raises awareness of Veteran suicide and how the community can #BeThere for Veterans and service members
An average of 20 U.S. Veterans a day die from suicide.

Suicide is preventable through connectivity and community support, and each of us has a role to play. To mobilize the nation, a new PSA narrated by actor and filmmaker Tom Hanks urgently calls on the public to take notice and take action by reaching out to a Veteran who may be in crisis. Through simple actions, we have the power to make a big difference for our Veterans and service members.   

The VA and its partners encourage the public to join the conversation by using #BeThere on social media, and by visiting www.BeThereforVeterans.com for more information on how to reach out and be there for the Veterans and service members in their communities. 

We hope you will be able to use these spots whenever public service time is available throughout the year.
