How WWP Warriors Are Helping to #CombatStigma … In Their Own Words

Mental health is a journey. Some days are good, some very difficult. But when veterans receive mental health support, they can thrive and find new purpose after leaving the military.

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) aims to help warriors find hope and healing wherever they are on their journey. Below are more tips and advice from WWP warriors and partners for military veterans to #Combat Stigma around mental wellness.

Some want to continue serving their country – by giving back to their communities and supporting other veterans by being a peer mentor and advocates.

“The biggest thing to know is that you are not alone. I used to think I was the only one struggling. Then I discovered WWP™, and I was introduced to so many other veterans who could relate to where I was coming from. That gave me hope and started me off on a path to better emotional, mental, and physical health that I didn't think I could ever obtain,” said Dan Miller, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who lives with a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder after an almost 30-year career that included multiple deployments.

“Once you reach out, you’ll be surprised as the open arms,” he said, adding that he makes time to reconnect with other warriors as part of his mental health journey.

Sgt. Sarah Delcore, who works with WWP community partner Warrior Canine Connection, shared that asking for help is an opportunity to pay it forward. “You never know who you are helping by being brave enough to help yourself. You may be inspiring a brother or sister to go get the help they need,” she said.  

Connect with other veterans and start your healing journey towards better mental health today.
