U.S. Army Veteran 
SHARE Military Initiative

Bill knew he didn't want to die, but he was drowning, and he was tired of pulling everyone down with him. He convinced himself that all he was to everyone was a paycheck and a punching bag, so he planned everything out to stack up enough money so that his wife and two kids would be comfortable without him here. Then in November 2019, they found out they were pregnant with their third child. It was a setback to his plan, but he was still convinced that his suicide would solve everyone's issues and leave them better off and then, his daughter was born on July 28, 2020, and at the very moment when he held her for the first time, he made the decision to find help. When he opened up about needing help, his boss, who has a connection with Shepherds Men, recommended the SHARE program. He never looked back.

There wasn’t a day during his entire time with the SHARE team that he didn’t feel welcome. His comfort level and healing were their number one priority. For him, it was an awesome experience, and he can’t say enough about cannot say enough about the entire staff at SHARE.

He will be the first to tell you that it literally saved his life.

Bill hopes that one day he can be a bigger advocate for veterans and mental health for everyone and that if you or anyone you know can benefit from these programs, you reach out. He has a feeling you won’t regret it and that if you or anyone you know can benefit from these programs.
