The ramifications are grave: severe depression, anxiety, and rampant suicide rates currently plague the military and veteran population.
Institutional efforts have done little to curb this pandemic. VA and DOD programs are burdened with stigmas and hampered by bureaucracy, preventing many veterans from getting the help they need. Even if effective programs were implemented, servicemen are often hesitant to seek aid from within the system for fear of being marginalized or deemed "broken.”
Warrior2Warrior’s approach to resilience is de-institutionalized, non-threatening, and significantly reduces stigma. We provide veterans in need with intensive physical rehabilitation and peer to peer mentorship, complemented by a suite of secondary services catered to the specific needs of each individual warrior.
