Mission Statement

To use Veterans to help current SC National Guard Members overcome the stigma associated with asking for help and facilitate getting the Service Member connected to the appropriate care system. The Volunteer serves as an early warning system to the National Guard's Resilience, Risk Reduction, and Suicide Prevention Program (R3SP) in identifying "at risk" Service Members and behavior. The end result is that SC Guard Members and their families receive effective and enduring assistance when the burdens of their service affect their well-being.

Description

No one knows the difficulties of being in the service better than a fellow service member. We’re looking for former Service Members to volunteer who are not currently serving that are willing to spend one day with us to learn about the various assistance networks available to National Guard members. After that, we’ll ask that you spend at least part of a day once a month at a local Guard armory. At the armory, Soldiers and Airmen will be able to come to you and seek help with getting connected to the right services to help them with their problems. The driving principle is that Soldiers and Airmen can discuss their issues with someone who is not in their chain of command and can remain confidential.
