Stack Up, a charity that supports veterans and brings them together with civilians through video games, has announced a grant from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention.
The CDC Program Evaluation Grant seeks to evaluate programs that help meet mental health needs in the veteran community, and the Stack Up charity does significant work to help benefit veterans and their families. They do outstanding work in the area of suicide and suicide prevention, and this grant award will help Stack Up help evaluate the effectiveness of its StOP initiative, a mental health, and suicide prevention program.
The charity is meant to help the U.S. and allied service members navigate the harsh everyday life of deployment to combat zones with the help of video games.
