Founded in 2010, The Soldiers Project (TSP) is an independent group of volunteer licensed mental health professionals. It provides free counseling and support to military service members who have served or who expect to serve in the Iraq and/or Afghanistan conflicts. Services are also available to the families and other loved ones of service members. TSP provides help to service members and families struggling with issues related to the overwhelming trauma of war including the cycle from pre-deployment to deployment to homecoming and re-entry to civilian life.
