Walk The Talk America

Bridging the gap between mental health and safe firearm ownership

Gun owners, firearm sellers, and mental health professionals must band together to protect the rights of all citizens and reduce the number of deaths by suicide. Walk The Talk America believes that by raising awareness and sharing accurate information, we can reach suffering individuals and let them know that they can seek help without consequence in most states. We can pave the way for those in need to gain access to treatment. We can save lives. We can shield their friends, families, and loved ones from the overwhelming sense of grief, confusion, and emptiness that suicide causes.

Our Mission & Vision

Help WTTA by sharing our mission and vision 

Our Mission

Walk The Talk America™ funds research and development for outreach and promotion of mental health to reduce the misconceptions and prejudices that exist when it comes to mental illness and firearms. We believe we can be a catalyst for change by working with experts in the mental health industry.

Our Goal

Our goal is to raise awareness and create a change in the misunderstandings regarding mental illness and firearms by bringing together industry leaders to reduce gun violence, negligence, suicide and the trauma created by these events. Develop programs for suicide prevention, firearms negligence, trauma mitigation, and child safety.

Collaboration

We have created alliances between the leading experts and organizations in the Firearms and Mental Health Industries. They have the knowledge and proper call to action to reach those who may want the help but have either been ignored or simply have been too afraid to seek help, because of the misconceptions that come with mental illness.

Commitment

We have also established commitments from several experienced and concerned colleagues in the firearm industry that are willing to donate their time, resources, and money to help.  Historically, both industries have cared deeply about this issue but have never been connected.

Community

WalktheTalkAmerica.org is a way to bring people together. The professionals and academics from both industries are moving forward with combining efforts, information, and resources to achieve our vision for the future.

We are excited for this new program to launch! We will not let #2020 negative energy define what we do. Stay tuned for more from Walk The Talk America!

#kidstokings is a program that I’m excited to see take off. I’ve always said that as the #guncommunity, if we know the majority of the gun death total in the #unitedstates is a combination of suicide and violence in #underprivileged #underserved communities...then we should be running towards it and the first ones there with solutions. I met @trench_work_chronicles at the 2019 #nrashow He was interviewing me about @walkthetalkus and had asked did I have any plans to branch out to the Black and Latino communities. I told him that nobody wants to see another Blind Side or Dangerous Minds and That he should do it. Of course #wtta would get behind a program, it just had to be the right one. Thankfully he had been planning to do something before we even met so here we are today. I am proud to have WTTA attached to this program because unlike a post on social media, this is actually doing something productive. Helping others, especially our youth, is the most selfless act a human can do. Kids To Kings does just that...really boots on the ground grass roots work that goes into the cities that everybody wants fixed, but nobody wants to get dirty and help. This has been a year in the making because everyone involved has donated their time and energy to this while working a full time job....and damn it...I am fucking proud of that. Stay tuned for more information! Thank you to @guns_for_everyone for everything that you do! We will change lives whether they help us or not.

There is no “one size fits all” solution due to all of the variables...but showing you care or listening can go a long way!

As we celebrate our Independence Day this weekend, be on the lookout for people who are struggling. Sometimes just a simple hello will make the difference.
