Following service, many of our veterans feel lost, plagued by disabling psychological and physiological afflictions. Through this struggle, a considerable stigma has been placed on these brave men and women. We intend to end this stigma.
By means of constructive dialogue, anecdotal reason, and novel erudition, Veterans Ending The Stigma aspires to end all stigma associated with veterans, namely perceptions about mental illness, homelessness, and the use of medical cannabis to treat conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Chronic Pain.
Through Education, Camaraderie, and Community Outreach, We can end the stigma placed upon our veterans.
