We are a group of licensed mental health professionals who offer free psychological treatment to military service members (active duty, National Guard, Reserves and veterans) who have served or who expect to serve in the conflicts in Iraq or Afghanistan. We provide free counseling and support 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. We see active duty as well as members of activated Reserve or Guard units. In addition, our services are available to the families and other loved ones of service members. We 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. Our services are readily accessible and entirely free of charge. We do not report to any government agency.
Getting an appointment is easy! Call the phone number of or send an email to the chapter nearest you (click here for the chapter location nearest you). Please be sure to speak slowly and repeat your phone number, including area code. An intake professional will call you back within 24 hours. After a brief telephone conversation with an intake professional, The Soldiers Project will find you a therapist in your area. This typically takes 24-48 hours. Our intake professional will call you with the name and number of a therapist in your area.
You contact the therapist to make an appointment. You will be their private client, seen in their office at no charge to you or your family. There is no limit on sessions. Please note that The Soldiers Project is committed to finding the best possible therapist to treat you. If you feel the therapist to whom you were assigned is not right for you, please call us so that we may find you a better match. There is no blame or fault assigned; it's about making a connection with someone with whom you will be working closely.
