True recovery requires a lifelong commitment to health and wellness.
The Fund offers innovative and holistic solutions tailored to fit the needs of our critically wounded, ill, and injured service members, veterans, and military families battling post-traumatic stress.
On a daily basis, The Fund experiences lives transformed by hope. Semper Fi & America’s Fund knows from nearly two decades of experience that this hope is real. We are excited about developments in brain research that have opened up new horizons of treatment modalities and effective interventions. We take concrete steps every day to accompany those we serve. The Fund shows them a new way forward—post traumatic growth.
According to the National Center for PTSD at the Department of Veteran Affairs, up to 20% of those who served in Afghanistan and Iraq still experience post-traumatic stress. Symptoms may include sleeplessness, nightmares, hyperarousal, or unwanted memories of trauma, anxiety, or depression.
The Fund ensures access to alternative health solutions, like acupuncture and yoga, as well as memory assistance technology that includes iPads and Livescribe Smartpens. We also provide grants to cover out-of-pocket costs associated with counseling services and intensive in-patient treatment programs.
