Retired Marine Corps Col. Mike Hudson is vice president of ClearForce, a company he said is working to "take its successful commercial technology and re-mission it" to fight veteran and service member suicide. By collating limited publicly available data on social determinants of health without compromising privacy, ClearForce aims to "highlight in real time" veterans and service members "in need of outreach." Through a multitiered system of support they hope will include the VA, veterans service organizations, and active-duty military commands, ClearForce would enable personal engagement with veterans and service members under pressure. It would link them with resources that Hudson said could "empower a course correction."
In observation of Veterans Day, our Vice President, Col. Mike Hudson spoke with Rich Valdes on The Jim Bohannon Show about our mission of helping reduce veteran suicide by way of empowering organizations to connect individuals with personalized support during times of need.
Col. Michael Hudson leads the ClearForce team efforts to transform veteran suicide prevention by leveraging new technology, privacy, compliance, and behavioral data to move upstream and push resources to empower those who struggle.
