24/7 Veterans Crisis Line for you or a loved one:

PTSD Foundation of America works to free veterans of debilitating anguish that can lead to a breakdown in mental health. K-LOVE's Bob Dittman talks with Ryan Rogers about healing from the 'moral injury' of combat.  Peer-to-peer Warrior Groups are available in cities nationwide.

-----------------------------------------

Another, somewhat unique, outreach to injured vets utilizes leather, beads, paint and glue: since 1971, Help Heal Vets has distributed more than 30-million arts and crafts kits – model cars, leather work, jewelry, needlepoint, clock-making – provided to veterans free of charge. But does art therapy work?  “Yes,” assures CEO Captain Joe McClain. "Got it’s start in WWI and has been used by clinicians in every conflict throughout." K-LOVE's Bob Dittman reports.
