Humans of New York x Headstrong Project Fundraiser Now Live!

September 01, 2016

The Humans of New York (HONY) “Invisible Wounds” series shares deeply personal stories of Headstrong Project clients, family members and staff. To assist, Sparks chronicles the series’ progression of posts with a dedicated page on Headstrong's website.

Sparks and Headstrong Project is a giving-back partnership. Headstrong's passion and unwavering dedication and vision makes them great. They help ensure a mentally stable and healthy veteran community. They also truly believe that if veterans have the courage to get the right help, they can return to lead meaningful lives.

Former Marine captain, Zachary Iscol, founded The Headstrong Project to provide world-class mental health treatment to veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The organization prides itself on offering treatment with zero cost and zero bureaucracy. They only ask for veterans to have the courage to seek treatment.

In addition, Headstrong Project aims to reach the status “Uber of PTSD treatment.”  It taps into existing trauma expertise of therapists across the United States. By outsourcing their experience in combat-related PTSD, Headstrong hopes to create a network of therapists who have the tools to treat veterans. They hope to purchase therapists’ time on behalf of veterans in every major city. Headstrong currently operates in New York, Houston and San Diego. They need resources to expand nationwide.


The Humans of New York feature has raised over $500K. Every donation matters, no matter how small, so, let's help Headstrong veterans.
