Veterans with PTSD learn to process emotions with family through Warrior to Soul Mate program



Veterans with PTSD are learning skills to process emotions with loved ones to reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety and strengthen life saving relationships with family, friends, and social supports. The grassroots educational training program was launched by U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs chaplains and social workers at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center in 2009 to proactively address a leading cause of veteran suicide: relationship breakdown. Recognized in 2010 as a VA Best Practice and after a decade of successful pilots programs, VA invested millions of dollars to make Warrior to Soul Mate available to every VA medical center nationwide. With appreciation to Chaplain Edward Waldrop.
