Message to Military Organizations

Studies conducted by The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research show that, among those veterans who were evaluated and determined to show signs of mental anguish, approximately 63% (283,000) struggling with reintegration issues will not seek mental health assistance due to the stigma and career consequences. In addition, it has been well documented that active duty military readiness and retention is severely impacted by these concerns. According to published studies by Colonel Charles Hoge, M.D., Director, Division of Psychiatry and Neuroscience, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, active duty troops expressed the following concerns that affect their decision to receive mental health care:

 

Perceived Barriers to Seeking Mental Health Services Among Soldiers and Marines
65% “I would be seen as weak.”
63% “My unit leadership might treat me differently.”
59% “Members of my unit might have less confidence in me.”
51% “My leaders would blame me for the problem.”
50% “It would harm my career.”

As such, it has become critical that alternative sources of support are available.

AMVETS Warrior Transition Programs conducted by the Freedom & Honor team is a training and education provider for personnel of the U.S. military (veterans, active duty, Reserve and Guard), with a focus on those struggling with combat stress and readjustment issues resulting from one or more deployments to serve in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), and other foreign military operations. These programs were designed by training experts and combat veterans. The flagship program is a 3-day hands-on reintegration training program using paradigm shift methodologies proven effective in dealing with trauma. To date through workshops and support to Yellow Ribbon events, more than 60,000 hours of training have been provided to more than 7,000 returning veterans. Freedom and Honor workshops proven to make an impact.
