HeadStrong provides post-9/11 military veterans with free mental health care that works. For every soldier lost in combat, 25-30 take their own lives. “As veterans ourselves, we know how tough it can be to overcome the hidden wounds of war. We’ve lost friends, made the same choices, and walked the same ground. That’s why we built Headstrong – because we know that if you have the courage to get help, and you get the right help, you can overcome the hidden wounds of war.”
The Mission Continues
The Mission Continues is a national nonprofit organization that empowers veterans to serve their country in new ways through two innovative and action-oriented programs.

The second, The Mission Continues Service Platoons brings together teams of veterans with local community organizations and volunteers to build stronger communities. The Mission Continues has helped thousands of post-9/11 veterans focus their talents and energy to tackle challenges facing us right here at home. Through a unique model that provides reciprocal benefit for the veteran and the local community, veterans volunteer to help others and, through their service, build new skills that help them launch their civilian career.
