/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Mighty Oaks Foundation, a Veterans non-profit that offers one of the most effective PTSD recovery programs available, in the battle against the Veteran suicide epidemic, has just been granted a once in a lifetime opportunity. Founder Chad Robichaux
and Executive Director Jeremy Stalnecker
have been invited to speak before a landmark coalition to address a bipartisan panel in Congress, of over 50 members of the Veterans Affairs Committee, and Armed Services Committee; this December 11th
to advocate, inform and make a case for faith-based treatment options being made available for our Nation's Warriors. As it has been shown in recent studies that faith-based treatment options are proving to be the most effective in the battle against the veteran suicide epidemic, which currently claims the lives of over 20+ per day.
In support of this landmark effort to make a case to our nation's legislators for what has shown to have one of the highest success rates of any program in their space, they want you to make your voice heard. They have launched a petition so that congress understands the depth of support for alternative and faith-based treatments, it is their goal to take 10,000 signatures with them to show congress the incredible public support for these options. The central reason they were invited is that Mighty Oaks offers one of the most effective PTS(d) recovery programs available anywhere, in the battle against the Veteran suicide epidemic. They have already reached well over 100,000 Veterans and active duty military, many on official orders, in the 9 years since Mighty Oaks was founded.
Their petition is live as of the publishing of this article and has already achieved 20% of their goal, they are asking their substantial social media following and anyone who receives this message to sign and share this petition page: https://www.mightyoaksprograms.org/coalition/
About Mighty Oaks Foundation:
After 18 years in the war on terror in Iraq
, more than half of the 2 million Veterans struggle with physical and mental health problems stemming from their service. According to the Department of Veteran Affairs, every day in America, over twenty veterans commit suicide. The V.A. Hotline receives an average of 400 calls per day. 2018 marked the highest military active-duty suicide rate in 10 years. At the same time, the divorce rate among active military personnel and returning Veterans is staggering, impacting Veterans, as well as their families. Many combat vets are unable to reintegrate back into civilian life leaving their families to work through the aftermath.
To date, we have had over 3,000 graduates of our Legacy Programs. That's over 3,000 military personnel, veterans, spouses, and first responders that have hope, healing, and renewed purpose. Additionally, we have reached over 130,000 men and women at Resiliency events around the world and handed out over 91,000 copies of our books. Our Resiliency events are focused on providing resources and tools for our Warriors so that they are properly equipped to face the many challenges of combat and life. We are proud to offer our programs at NO COST to all attendees! That also includes travel to and from one of our four program locations throughout the country.
The Mighty Oaks Foundation is committed to serving the brokenhearted by providing a series of intensive peer-based recovery programs, outpost meetings, and speaking events. Our Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs hosts such Men, Women, and Marriage Advance Programs at multiple locations nationwide. The Warriors who attend are fully sponsored for training, meals, and lodging needs to ensure that upon arrival to the ranch, each Warrior is focused solely on his or her recovery and identifying purpose moving forward.
