Many of our nation's veterans are labeled high-risk and are in lockdown with little contact from others (no visitors, no family allowed, no volunteers, and limited staff interaction). The coronavirus is overwhelming, but being alone in a pandemic crisis is terrifying.
Additionally, Heal Vets is working closely with the VA on the matters of suicide awareness & education. Suicide prevention is an important cause of Heal Vet's CEO, Joe McClain, as he sees a potential increase in this issue right now. Lockdown equals depression and anxiety. Heal Vets has increased therapy kit production for those military/veteran personnel in quarantine and is shipping as many pallets of Therapeutic Craft Kits as quickly as possible to VA centers across the nation that are being used in the quarantine efforts.
