Real Warriors Campaign Helps Members of the Military, Veterans and their Families

NEW YORK, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Post-traumatic stress is a common problem among American service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. To combat the stigma that keeps some members of the military, veterans and their families from seeking needed psychological help, the Department of Defense launched the Real Warriors Campaign.

See video from the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury at: http://inr.mediaseed.tv/DoD_36634/

The campaign, themed "Real Warriors--Real Battles--Real Strength," is hosted by the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCOE).

This multimedia public education effort makes reaching out easier by providing access to psychological health information and resources 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Individuals can chat online with psychological health coaches through the campaign website, www.realwarriors.net. They may also reach out by calling the Outreach Center at 866-966-1020.

The campaign is part of a larger effort by the Department of Defense to ensure that warriors and their families can access necessary treatment for the invisible wounds of war as well as the visible wounds. Many service members and veterans deny themselves treatment for psychological wounds out of the fear that doing so would hurt their careers, embarrass them or harm their families.

For additional information, please call 877-291-3263.
