Objective Zero seeks to lower veteran suicide rates by leveraging technology to overcome the aforementioned contributing causes of suicide (lackluster access to mental health care and low levels of social connectedness). To do this, the Objective Zero app connects veterans across the country to a catalogue of trusted mental health resources and a nationwide network of trained peer supporters at the touch of a button. Through robust partnerships with leading wellness companies, such as Headspace, the app also connects users to free wellness content like meditation and yoga sessions.
