Our soldiers today have been fighting wars unlike any others, with a largely invisible enemy and facing injuries or casualties from unseen threats like IEDs or suicide bombers. Some return home limited by severe physical and mental injuries. Many find adjusting to civilian life extremely challenging due to depression, loss of purpose, or other crises related to their deployment. And sadly, as a nation, we’ve seen suicide rates skyrocket among our veterans.
Heal the Hero provides programs that help lower trauma and anxiety, and improve depression and quality of life.
- In 2019, Heal the Hero Foundation provided 28,000 brain performance sessions, including 4,500 for veterans and first responders.
- The program is currently being used by the U.S. Air Force and its Wounded Warrior Unit to ease PTSD symptoms and increase resilience to stress.
- Programs can be offered remotely to reach veterans and first responders in rural America – or wherever they are deployed.
