The effects of war can be difficult to overcome, both physically and mentally. Since our organization is comprised of combat wounded Veterans we find that most were not given the mental health treatment the needed after they returned home.
We aim to decrease the negative stigma associated with these heroes getting help and we use a peer to peer approach to keep these warriors from becoming a statistic.
