SERVICES

The Soldiers Project helps service members face these challenges by providing free, individualized psychological treatment to those men and women who have served in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts as well as their support systems: spouses, parents, children, grandparents, boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, and colleagues. Because when a soldier goes to war, his loved ones go to war with him.
Our commitment is to always be:

  • Free: Whether you need intensive treatment to get through a crisis or weekly treatments for many, many years, you will never be charged a fee
  • Easily-accessible: We match you with therapists that meet your needs in terms of location, session times and other factors essential to providing customized care
  • Confidential: All of our therapists treat patients in their private practices and are not associated with any branch of the military
