JACKSONVILLE, FL — With the rapidly changing situation in Afghanistan, we understand that many warriors are experiencing a wide variety of emotions: concerns, confusion, anger, frustration, and sadness. We encourage the warriors we serve to seek out any resources or help that you may need.
If you are struggling with thoughts of suicide and need to talk confidentially with someone, please contact the 24/7 Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 and press 1. You may also chat online or text 838255. If you are in immediate danger of hurting yourself, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Remember, you are not alone. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) remains by your side.
Please do not wait to connect with loved ones, colleagues, friends, or fellow warriors. Being there for one another is critically important, and you may never know who is struggling and needs a helping hand or friend to talk with. One of the most remarkable things about the veteran community is the sense of camaraderie forged in the fires of shared experiences in the service of this nation. That community is strong and resilient and is needed more than ever right now.
WWP stands ready to support all warriors who may be feeling overwhelmed or struggling. Here are a few ways we can support you:
The Resource Center team welcomes warriors and their families into WWP and serves as a connection point at every step along their individual journeys. Whatever you need, this team is prepared to assist.
Connect With Others
No one should live long-term with isolation or loneliness. When you’re registered with WWP, you’re connected to a community of fellow veterans who want to champion your success, lend a hand, and be there when you need them most.
Mental Health Support
At WWP, we know the impact the Global War on Terror has had on warriors’ mental health. Through interactive programs, rehabilitative retreats, and professional services, you can build the resilience you need to overcome mental health challenges, including post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, and more.
WWP offers many more services that help with other areas of life. Please check out our full list of programs to see how we can serve you best. No matter where you are in your recovery, you’re not alone.
Your service, sacrifice, duty, honor, valor, and courage aren’t and will never be forgotten.
