The Soldiers Project is a private, non-profit, independent group of volunteer licensed mental health professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, registered nurses and marriage and family therapists.
Counseling and support is provided for free to military service members who have served or who expect to serve in the Iraq and/or Afghanistan conflicts and to veterans of those conflicts. In addition, the services are available to the families and other loved ones of service members. The Soldiers Project aims to provide help to service members and families struggling with issues related to the overwhelming trauma of war including the cycle from pre-deployment to deployment to homecoming and re-entry to civilian life.
The services are readily accessible and entirely free of charge. Soldiers Project does not report to any government agency.
Since its inception in 2004, The Soldiers Project (started by Dr. Judith Broder) has provided free, unlimited, confidential psychological counseling to those who have served or expect to serve in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as to their loved ones. Their treatment of those suffering not only from PTSD and TBI but also from MST – Military Sexual Trauma – has always been unique in honoring the privacy and dignity of the service members who have the courage to approach us for professional help.
