Our Mission
We are currently trying to meet the mental health needs of the military and Veteran community. More than half a million Iraq and Afghanistan war Veterans have not sought care from the VA. Our Guiding Principle is to heal the Whole Veteran.

  • 20 percent of Veterans have PTSD or depression
  • 20 percent report traumatic brain injury (TBI) during deployment

We support efforts to deliver community- based services that include trained and certified peers, service navigation, and community outreach. In addition, we support an integrated, holistic model of health, recognizing mental health needs cannot be separated from other critical needs, such as housing and employment, resource coordination, duplication of effort and ineffective services.
