Headstrong’s mission is to provide cost-free, stigma-free, and bureaucracy-free mental health care to post-9/11 veterans
In 2012, USMC veteran Zach Iscol founded Headstrong in partnership with Weill Cornell Medical College, one of the nation’s leading mental health care centers. With the help and direction of top clinicians in the country, Headstrong developed a comprehensive treatment program for post 9/11 Veterans dealing with PTSD, addiction, anxiety and depression, trauma, grief and loss, and anger management.
Headstrong has identified the barriers already in place and, in a true military fashion, came up with effective solutions for eliminating them - by putting funding directly into the care of the veterans. Headstrong has eliminated hurdles that patients experience with existing programs by providing cost-free assistance with experienced clinicians and individualized care without the wait time and extensive forms.
Committed to veteran mental health care we have treated over 250 veterans, helping them regain their mental fitness.
We currently treat veterans in the New York Metro area, San Diego and Riverside County, Houston, Chicago, and Washington D.C. with plans to expand to additional cities by end of year and nationwide within the next three years.
