Veteran develops app to help other veterans with their mental health

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2019-09-10 15:55

About the solution

Rey developed No Warriors Left Behind to help other veterans that, like him, struggle with PTSD, depression and anxiety.

He was able to deal with these issues on his own, however, because he knows that not everyone can, he decided to create a tool that would help others with their mental health.

And that’s how No Warriors Left Behind was born: a mobile app that connects vets with resources that can help them deal with PTSD.
"If I can save one veteran, my job is done," he expressed.

The app gives the users links to educational websites, support groups and a crisis hotline for veterans. It can also help the veteran to get quickly on the line with someone in case of self-harm and suicide.

“The statistic is 22 veteran suicides occur each day. This is an obvious problem. There are resources available, however, there is not one program entirely dedicated to veteran resources. My application is very different, as nothing like it exists. There is no other application that has the crisis phone number integrated into it and there is not another application that has compiled all the different organisations committed to helping veterans in one place. This is what the app will provide”, the developer explained.
The app is free and is available for Android and iOS.
