Veterans Preventing Misinformation and Violence

START and We the Veterans have partnered to promote a public health approach to violence prevention. We aim to engage veterans, their families, veteran service organizations, and military family service organizations to foster a violence prevention ecosystem. The program aims to collaborate on primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention programs, and implement proof-of-concept projects consistent with TVTP Promising Practices.
