Our founder, Todd Woodfill, believes that legislation is a key component in fighting the mental health epidemic and ending suicide. The Defeat Suicide Foundations carries on the mission to change legislation and advocate for those suffering with mental health challenges.
A few of the priorities we are working with the legislators on:
Ear marking mental health funding (instead of general fund usage)
Improved treatment through VA for warriors
Early Identification And Intervention For Those At Risk
Overall Health Care Reform Legislation for Lower Health Care Costs, Especially for Low-Income
