Coming home from war is not easy. Through a partnership with Weill Cornell Medical College, the Headstrong Project provides cost-free, bureaucracy-free, and confidential mental healthcare treatment to Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans.
Nearly 400,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans report symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder as of December 31, 2014. The VA estimates we lose 22.7 veterans a day to suicide with 41% higher risk of suicide for deployed veterans compared to the general U.S. population.
With Weill Cornell Medical College, the nation’s leading mental health care center, Headstrong developed a first of its kind, individually-tailored, comprehensive treatment program for Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); Addiction Treatment; Anxiety & Depression; Trauma, Grief and Loss; and Anger Management. Since 2012, we have demonstrated a successful treatment program, eliminating or materially decreasing symptoms of mental health challenges like restored sleep, improving family communications, reducing substance abuse, and weaning of medications.
Programs are based in New York, Southern California, Houston Texas, Chicago, Washington DC and soon to launch in Colorado Springs. The Headstrong Project has treated over 250 post-9/11 veterans to date and has provided more than 3,000 clinical treatment hours.
