Why is REBOOT necessary?

The truth is that the traditional approaches to mental healthcare aren’t working quickly enough.

There simply aren’t enough providers to meet the demand and people are dying while they wait.

That’s why REBOOT exists to help people overcome trauma through our faith-based, peer-led programs.

More than 20,000 people have already embrace a brighter future. But our work is far from done! By 2025, we aim to have had than 50,000 people attend a REBOOT course.

Will you join us?

More people died by suicide last year than the year prior - a trend that has continued for nearly 20 years.

Over one-third of Americans live in areas lacking mental health professionals.

Experts estimate there will be a shortage of over 15,000 providers by 2025.


Suicide is now the 2nd leading cause of death for ages 18-39 - and climbing.

TRAUMA is our personal intersection with the brokenness of the world. 
RECOVERY is our personal intersection with the redemptive heart of God.

Our Programs

Our decentralized approach allows us to identify hurting people long before traditional approaches. Each week, hundreds of volunteers facilitate programs in over 400 course locations spanning 44 states and 11 countries.

See for yourself the impact REBOOT is making.

How REBOOT works:

REBOOT has developed a proven system that is peer-led, faith based and outcomes driven. Our model gets to the root cause of suicide which is trauma and her's how it works:

  • REBOOT groups meet one night per week for 12 weeks

  • Meals and childcare are provided to remove barriers

  • Spouses and caregivers are encouraged to attend
  • Graduates continue into our extensive aftercare program.

  • Current specific programs are tailored for veterans and first responders.

The need is great. How will you get involved?
