We must stand together and put an end to veteran suicide. While one person may not make a difference, we believe those that band together can and will! Suicide needs to become a thing of the past! Let’s help our heroes fight the battles they can no longer fight alone!
Jessica Ruyts is the President and Founder of The Ruyts Foundation of Veteran Suicide Prevention. I am no different than the rest, I too have suffered from thoughts of suicide and a attempt to take my own life. Jessica holds several college degrees in Accounting, Criminal Justice, Criminal Law and Allied health, including two Associate degrees, one Bachelors degree and one Juris Doctorate. She has a mission in life to end all veteran and soldier suicide. While on this mission I have a mission to also end the stigma that surrounds mental health. I have family who fight thoughts of suicide daily, and that is something I never want them to feel or act on. “Help our heroes fight the battles they can no longer fight alone.” -Jessica Ruyts
