CLEVELAND, OH — "1 Is Too Many" has established a partnership with the Resurrecting Lives Foundation to help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, addiction, and suicidal ideation.

The partnership was announced by Dr. Chrisanne Gordon and 2nd Vice Jeff Brown at the American Veterans Department of Ohio's 75th Annual Convention.

When she realized that there were not many resources available to veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other issues, Dr. Gordon decided to establish the organization.

Suffering from a TBI herself, Dr. Gordon has brought awareness for these issues through a documentary film, Operation Resurrection. The film defines and promotes coordinated health, employment, and educational interventions for veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. The lives of several OIF/OEF veterans after they came back home from war become the highlight of the film.

Through the partnership, both organizations will be capable of helping more of Ohio's veterans who are struggling now and will be able to bring awareness of issues facing veterans when they leave the service.

1 Is Too Many is a non-profit organization that aims to help veterans dealing with issues like opioid/drug abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, other mental health conditions, financial issues, legal issues, convictions, and more.

Similarly, the Resurrecting Lives Foundation is a non-political organization with a mission to coordinate and advocate for the successful transition to a post-military career and life for veterans with TBI.

This organization also actively partners with other established 501 (c)(3) organizations to coordinate programs and resources such as providing job training and career opportunities to TBI veterans following their treatment and during their ongoing recovery.
