Winners of Anti-Suicide Development Mission Announced

VA chooses ten projects out of 1,300 contest applicants.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently announced the 10 projects that won Mission Daybreak, a competition for plans dedicated to reducing suicides among Veterans. A total of $20 million will be distributed to the winners, with $3 million going to two first-place winners, $1 million to three second-place winners, and $500,000 to the five third-place winners.

“Our Veterans need and deserve suicide prevention solutions that meet them where they are, rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach, and that’s exactly what Mission Daybreak has delivered,” said VA Under Secretary for Health Shereef Elnahal. “By drawing on a range of focus areas and life experiences, the Mission Daybreak winners have developed innovations that will save Veterans’ lives – and there’s nothing more important than that.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Denis McDonough to seek the Lord’s direction as he heads the VA.
  • For Under Secretary Shereef Elnahal as he fulfills his role in the VA office of health.
  • That many veterans who struggle with mental health will receive assistance through Mission Daybreak programs.
