The Governor’s Challenge to Prevent Suicide Among Service Members, Veterans, and the Families (SMVF) seeks to bring entities together as a coalition. We believe that operating as community-based initiatives, coalitions extend the reach of evidence-based prevention, intervention, and postvention resources, training/education and services to reach underserved communities and populations.

To that end, we encourage you as individuals, businesses or civic organizations to join our initiative. To learn more, please get in touch with the point of contact provided. Feel free to use the SaveNJVets logos found in our media resources.
