About Us

Our Story

No Vet Alone is a national peer support network to empower resilience for America’s Finest. Our network helps create communities that provide resources and tools to help our nation’s heroes improve their lives. Veterans are encouraged to GET CONNECTED and GET INVOLVED.

Established the Cognoscenti Research Project in April 2019 to Create a unique and highly innovative protocol with targeted and personalized mental health treatments and suicide prevention by combining peer support, technology, functional medicine, and community action to improve the brain health and produce more effective outcomes. 

 Our nation-wide network of community programs provides a vital lifeline for those who serve our country.

No Vet Alone changes the lives of veterans, first responders and their families by improving the issues they face: PTSD, mental health, physical wellness, homelessness, drug addiction, depression, and isolation related issues that directly affect their wellbeing.  No Vet Alone inspires hope and community that fosters the will to live.


Supported by the Veterans Administration, Amen Clinics, Sherbinskis, American Red Cross, KHS Bicycles, Primal Wear, Safe Tech Helmets, and other partners throughout the U.S., the weekend will include hundreds of events that will ensure that there is NoVetAlone.  No Vet Alone is a national organization dedicated to honoring Veterans and ending the national PTSD suicide crisis.
