I am proud to be partnered with the Headstrong Project, a program that links military, veterans, and their associated family members with clinicians all over the country, giving them access to free, confidential, frictionless mental health care. The Headstrong Project, in partnership with Weill Cornell Medicine is dedicated to treating PTSD and related military trauma.
Here's how it works:
- A veteran or military-connected individual reaches out through the Headstrong Project website.
- The veteran is contacted within 48 hours.
- An appointment is scheduled.
- Tailored treatment begins.
Cost-free, bureaucracy-free, stigma-free, confidential effective treatment for military veterans.
