Wounded Warrior Project Spotlight - Healing the Invisible Wounds

As many as 500,000 of today's generation of veterans live with the effects of post-traumatic stress
disorder (PTSD). These men and women cope multiple symptoms including flashbacks, frightening thoughts, anger, and interruptions in sleep.
Warrior Care Network® – a partnership between Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and its partner hospitals (The Veterans Program at Emory Healthcare; the Road Home Program at Rush University Medical Center; Operation Mend at UCLA Health; and Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital program) provide treatment and coping skills for warriors dealing with PTSD. Beyond just sleep studies, Warrior Care Network provides intensive two- to three-week outpatient programs that include more therapy hours than most patients would experience in a year.
Warrior Care Network connects veterans across the nation to world-class care, aimed at healing the invisible wounds of war. Help support these efforts by donating to Wounded Warrior Project now.
