Healing the hidden wounds of war. This motto fuels the team at Headstrong Project. Their mission is to provide free, private, and appropriate mental healthcare to veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from PTSD - or other mental trauma as a result of their service.
Founded by a decorated Marine Corps officer, who served multiple tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa and Asia, Headstrong Project is all about finding the right treatment to veterans who actively seek help.
From the ‘Meet The Team’ page on Headstrong Project’s website, founder Zach Iscol explains why he started this initiative.
“Zach is also the executive director of Headstrong Project, a non-profit partnered with Weill Cornell Medical Center to fund and develop comprehensive mental healthcare programs to treat Iraq and Afghanistan veterans free of cost, stigma, and bureaucracy. He founded Headstrong Project with the belief that if fellow veterans have the courage to get help, and they get the right help, they can return to leading meaningful and impactful lives.”
Most recently featured by the award-winning Humans of New York page, Headstrong Project is looking to grow their organization to provide comprehensive mental healthcare to veterans all over the United States.
BBMC is proud to support the Headstrong Project in their journey to healing the hidden wounds of war for so many Americans and their families.
