Veterans 360 advocates an education versus cure approach to these problems. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness or an inability to cope. It is a sign of strength. Veterans are much more formidable when they are better educated and trained in how to deal with adversity.
No matter your political affiliation or social class, we invite you to join our movement to reverse this trend of despondency and struggle in our young transitioning veterans.

Note: We are often asked why we do not engage older veterans or those with long term military service. This is always a delicate balance. The simple answer, if there is one, is that our younger veterans need this entry level type of support. Our older veterans have bought homes and cars, have family, have a lot more life and military education and a much more robust support network. Our young veterans are much more at risk, vulnerable and underserved. If we do not focus we will simply get overwhelmed and quite frankly our older veterans would be bored and not find the same value in the entry level education that we provide. We hope you understand.
