Prepare for the next big iteration of LRT’s “Searchlight/Spotlight/Ignite” as our team prepares itself to compete in a major Veterans Administration contest to locate organizations with innovative approaches to the problem of veteran suicides. And they are putting up serious money to deal with this serious issue - $20 million!!!
Termed Mission Daybreak, it constitutes a grand challenge to thought leaders of any and every industry to develop and put into effect suicide prevention solutions that meet the diverse needs of Veterans.
As there is no single cause and no single strategy to accomplish this task, the VA expects a diversity of “solvers” – including veterans, researchers, technologists, advocates, clinicians, and health innovators – to form teams and generate cures.
LRT intends to lead one of these teams and is in the process of selecting companion organizations (searchlight) whose genius we can spotlight and whose success we can ignite. Does this resonate with you? Please get in touch with us before this month is out if you have (or are) a candidate to be our partner. Hurry. Each day we delay, on average 22 veterans will commit suicide.
