Intervention Saves Lives

Our mission is the eradication of suicide among veterans; the brave individuals that have fought for the freedoms we enjoy every day. Armed Forces Mission is the 2016 Trinity Awards Emergency Responder of the Year for our work in conducting more than 650 successful suicide interventions. We will not rest until all are safe in the communities we serve.


AFM’s I Will Intervene Challenge features world class curriculum taught by experienced Master Trainers. More than 8,200 individuals across the USA have participated in the Challenge gaining the skills to save lives. We work with First Responders, Faith Groups, Schools, Hospitals, Civic and Corporate organizations to create a network of care for all at risk of suicide. Take the Challenge today or organize a Challenge for your community.
