Mission 22

EVERY DAY IN AMERICA WE LOSE OVER 20 VETERANS TO SUICIDE.  Mission 22 was created to end the stigma surrounding PTS and Traumatic Brain Injury and get our veterans the treatment options they want and deserve.

Mission 22 was founded by Special Forces operators Magnus Johnson, and Mike Kissel and Infantryman Brad Hubbard. Because of their personal battles with PTSD and TBI, they have made it their mission to raise awareness, enlist support, and end veteran suicide in America.

Mission 22 has three major programs. Funding veterans to receive treatment for Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they may be facing through our many partner organizations, large scale public art to honor veterans and creating social impact for the issues veterans are facing today,

Mission 22 has comprehensive programs to treat veterans suffering from PTS and TBI. We also have partnered with other organizations that offer amazing services to veterans as well as doctors and treatment facilities across the country. The VA is a great resource but they are understaffed and underfunded. With your help we can get our veterans the help they need now, without the wait. Our partner organizations specialize in Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, substance abuse and all of the issues veterans are facing today.
