The Headstrong Project will host Words of War, a benefit in support of comprehensive mental healthcare for military veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, on October 1.
This presentation of wartime poetry, literature, theater and letters articulates the exuberance and ideals that drive men and women to war, the thrill and horror of combat, the difficulties of returning home, and the experience of family members worried about their loved one at war. Iconic wartime images will be projected during the presentation.
The Headstrong Project has launched a long term project to provide cost-free, stigma-free, and bureaucracy-free mental healthcare to Iraq and Afghanistan veterans with care being delivered at Weill Cornell Medical College.
This program brings together leading research scientists and clinicians in PTSD to develop a manual, treatment program, curriculum, and certification program to train, develop, implement, and fund a nationwide network of mental healthcare providers who can treat Iraq and Afghanistan veterans especially in rural areas outside the reach of the VA. Concurrently, through partnerships with Iraq and Afghanistan Veteran Service organizations, Headstrong is recruiting veterans and active duty and reserve service members in need to receive care free of charge.
