About 20 US Veterans die by suicide each day. The effects of war on Veterans’ mental health most often extend past their time in service, as they suffer from increased rates of Major Depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. With effective treatment, we can heal the wounds of our nation’s Veterans.

This Veterans Day, we’ve partnered with The Headstrong Project an organization providing effective mental health treatment for post-9/11 veterans and their families, to share the stories of Veterans’ mental health experiences and their resilience in the face of often significant hardship and trauma. It is important that we draw attention to these staggering statistics and the difficult transitions that Veterans experience upon their return home – in an effort to educate ourselves, destigmatize the Veteran mental health experience and increase mental health funding & resources for this disproportionately impacted community.

We honor their service, bravery, and the sacrifices they have made for our country.
