Each day, 20 veterans die from suicide in the U.S.
Johnson & Johnson has a rich history of supporting service members, which is why it has partnered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to launch the #BeThere campaign aimed at raising awareness of veteran suicide.
The goal: help veterans and service members in need of support and resources before it's too late.
“As one of the world’s largest healthcare companies, with a 115-year history of working with the military and veterans, we believe we have a responsibility to help address the issue,” says former U.S. Army captain, President, Neurosciences, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies. “By working with like-minded partners, Johnson & Johnson is uniquely positioned to reach, engage and empower the public to support the heroes in our communities.”
