The Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded its $20 million grand challenge — Mission Daybreak — aimed at developing innovations to reduce veteran suicides. Now agency leadership is targeting new data advancements.
“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,” VA Undersecretary for Health Shereef Elnahal said in a press release. “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.”
Through Mission Daybreak, Televeda will use funding to create programs and develop technology solutions for suicide prevention and other forms of mental health support.
