Headstrong Project, Inc.
Headstrong Project Veterans Mental Health – COVID-19
Service Area: National
Founded in 2012, Headstrong Project, Inc. provides mental health care treatment for military veterans and their families. For veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder and other forms of anxiety, COVID-19 poses a brand-new set of problems and stressors. Isolation, coupled with the health risk of COVID-19, and the need for many to restrict movement or shelter in place, has elevated anxiety and fear. Headstrong has seen a surge in the demand for mental health services through their programs, which provide suicide prevention and evidence-based mental health services to post-9/11 veterans and their families. This Bob Woodruff Foundation grant will provide evidence-based therapy to improve mental health outcomes for 19 individuals who are either post-9/11 veterans or family members of post-9/11 veterans.
