Mental Health and Wellness

Wounded Warrior Project offers an innovative, personal approach to veteran mental health and wellness that centers around you.

Mental Health Services for Veterans

According to our recent Annual Warrior Survey, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression are the most common mental health challenges for warriors.

Through our interactive programs, mental health workshops, and a broad offering of professional services, veterans can build resilience to help overcome mental health conditions, including PTSD, military sexual trauma (MST), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and more. Since 2010, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has provided over 78,000 life-changing mental health services to warriors and family members – helping veterans and their families live happier and more fulfilling lives.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. The Mental Health Triage team is here to ensure warriors are matched to the right veteran mental health programs and services no matter where they are on their unique mental health journey. A highly trained team member will conduct a brief, one-on-one screening before making personalized recommendations to various programs and veteran mental health services to meet specific needs. As always, all programs and services provided through WWP™ are at no-cost to veterans and their families.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can expect a Mental Health Triage teammate to call and email you within 3-5 business days.

The Mental Health Triage teammate will need basic information about your current situation and what mental health care you may have tried in the past. We don’t need medical records or detailed information about your treatment but will want to understand what kind of support you have in place, how urgently you need care, and what type of care makes the most sense for you.

The type of service or program you are connected to is dependent on eligibility factors as well as your own motivation to engage in that level of care. The Mental Health Triage team can refer you to WWP’s supportive programs or clinical services ranging from telephonic emotional support to in-person, accelerated treatment programs for PTSD, MST, or other service-connected mental health concerns.

WWP services remain free and at no-cost to our warriors and their families. During the initial triage screening call, you will be asked about what type of insurance or benefits you have. You will be asked if you’re willing to allow WWP or our partners to seek insurance reimbursement to offset the cost of these services, which are paid in full by generous donors. You will never be responsible for co-pays, coinsurance, or deductibles of any kinds. This is an effort to serve more warriors.

A Mental Health Triage teammate will always send a follow-up email after any attempt to call you. Just let them know your circumstances and you can arrange a call via email at a time that is convenient for you.

Programs like WWP Talk and Project Odyssey may be available to caregivers or family support members. Clinical treatment may include a family support member in part or whole of the program. Wounded Warrior Project also provides support programs for family members of veterans. Caregivers may reach out to WWP for assistance in navigating the VA Caregiver Support Program.
