About My Buddy 1OV3

Our Mission

The My Buddy Love app's (MBL) main mission is to eradicate suicides in the veteran community with the power of the Buddy system. Many veterans are familiar with the buddy system because it has been an intricate pillar for many when faced with extenuating circumstances.  Simply having a buddy in our corners goes a long way towards mental stability. That friend that listens to us. The leader always being there to uplift. Even that peer to whom we can relate during certain times can change our mental feelings in an instance. 

Our aim is to never see a vet feel alone in times of need. To never let them walk the path of depression alone. To give them hope when they feel like giving up. In the end, it's all about Love for our fellow buddies.

Helpful Resources

Learning to Cope

Being military veterans we run through the gambit of feelings and emotions every year we serve. Little things from a close friend leaving to another base. To much bigger emotional issues like the loss of a close buddy. One thing that we could always depend on to help us get through is the fact we could depend on our buddies to have our backs!

There is no better support system than a person that can understand and listen to our issues. This is where our app will make a change in the world by connecting veterans with other veterans.

VA Self assessment for mental disorders

We're all facing battles in our own heads that don't tend to make sense. They seem like an endless battle that we can't get away from. A big step in the right direction is having an understanding of where your mental health is. A great resource for this is the VA self assessments.

The Importance of Human Connection

As veterans, it is super simple to find a dark corner and sit there alone. This corner is usually somewhere in our minds and it ends up controlling our entire minds. 


We start to believe that we aren't worthy of anything. We start to believe that our sacrifices were for not. We even believe that there is    bigger purpose in our lives. Besides turn to death as a way out.


That is not you speaking and this is why we want to be a part of your life. This is why we want to give you a Buddy to speak with in order to make a difference
