OCEANSIDE- December 15, 2017 – Available today, the groundbreaking Objective Zero mobile application offers tools and resources to reduce the number of suicides within the military and Veteran community. Research shows that social connectedness and access to resources are important factors in preventing suicide, which users can find within the Objective Zero app.
The Objective Zero app connects Veterans, current military members, their families, and caregivers to a nationwide support network of trained listeners via voice, video, and text message at the touch of a button. The mobile app also connects its users to military and Veteran-centric resources, as well as yoga and meditation content to enhance user wellness. Co-founder Justin Miller on his struggle with suicidal ideations and the Objective Zero app, “The only thing that stopped me was the fact that I thought that putting that round in the chamber was going to wake my wife up… I’m living proof that Objective Zero is going to work. I was suicidal and a brother contacted me. If I had an app where I could just open it up and hit one button and know that I would be anonymously connected to another veteran who has lived, walked, breathed, tasted the same things- it’s going to instantly build camaraderie.”
The Objective Zero app is now available to download for free in the United States on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
