Mission

The Soldiers Project's (TSP’s) mission is to provide a safety net of psychological care for military service members and their loved ones and to educate the general public on how the psychological consequences of war affect both those who serve and their loved ones at home. TSP provides free direct mental health services nationwide to post-9/11 military veterans, active duty service members, and their loved ones via a network of 519 volunteer clinicians who donate their services pro bono, including 250 across California. TSP has provided mental health services to more than 2,500 individuals across the U.S. since 2015. In addition, since 2016, more than 475 clinicians have received trainings from TSP which were eligible for Continuing Education credits for maintaining clinical licensure.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

TSP serves post-9/11 veterans, service members, and their family members and loved ones who need mental healthcare yet cannot access it. TSP treats individuals regardless of discharge status. Historically, individuals who have been less than honorably discharged are unable to receive veterans benefits and are at higher risk for suicide. While the VA issued a directive in July 2017 to provide up to 90 days of mental health services to those with an Other Than Honorable Discharge, at this time there are few resources to implement the policy change. As a result, 500,000 more veterans are attempting to receive care from the VA, overwhelming a network already experiencing months-long delays for mental health services.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to to provide our free and confidential services to increasing number of Post 9/11 service members and their loved ones, to provide an increasing number of free therapeutic hours, and to increase the number of volunteer mental health professionals in our network year over year. Over time, additional goals are to add chapter service areas to the organization.

Our staff actively engages current volunteers and seeks to recruit additional mental health professionals to our network. We provide trainings to all volunteers in issues relative to our population such as Military Culture, PTSD, Traumatic Brain injury and others. We maintain relationships with both the VA and other community organizations that serve veterans and have a steady stream of client referrals.

Our organization enjoys a strong reputation in Southern California. The Soldiers Project was founded by retired psychiatrist Dr. Judith Broder in 2004 under the fiscal sponsorship of the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies in Los Angeles. From its inception, TSP was designed as a comprehensive direct services program to address the unmet psychological needs of veterans of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, focusing on prevention and early intervention to deal with service-related psychological injuries resulting from wartime experiences.

We hope to continue to grow our budget to expand into areas where we know many service members, veterans and their families live (such as Colorado and Florida). We are working toward those goals and every donation helps us get closer!
