Veterans Mental Health & Well-being
Veterans' Mental Health & Well-Being
Soldiers return home with more than duffle bags and dog tags. Nearly one in four who served in Iraq and Afghanistan suffer from major depression or post-traumatic stress, yet many who need mental health care do not receive it.
Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation awards five grants totaling more than $2.77M. Recipients include the University of Michigan, zero8hundred, TAPS and the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving.
The Foundation’s Mental Health & Well-Being initiative aims to help veterans, military service members, their families, and the families of the fallen. We focus on community-based solutions to help with mental health and community reintegration.
The Foundation is also a founding member of the Philanthropy-Joining Forces Impact Pledge in collaboration with the Office of the First Lady. Together, we work with corporate professionals to create one-on-one mentoring relationships for veterans.
