What We Do

Every day, one veteran commits suicide nearly every hour, while at least 15% of returning vets suffer from Post Traumatic Stress. Many vets wait months for mental health care, especially with the VA managing a backlog of more than 900,000 unprocessed medical claims.

If you are one of the thousands of veterans affected by Post Traumatic Stress, or other mental health issues, you are not alone, and we are here to help you get the support you seek.

Sound Off provides veterans with a support system you can trust, by establishing ongoing, anonymous relationships with mental health specialists.

We seek to provide anonymous access to a stable of certified mental health specialists via mobile application, or standard internet connection.

You will be able to:

  • Connect with certified mental health specialists anonymously by phone, online or via a mobile app.
  • Maintain repeat contact with specific providers.
  • Speak with one of a body of screened and trained veterans, called “Battle Buddies,” via the same interface.

How it works:

  • Sound Off will develop a cadre of therapists and Battle Buddies organically and through partnerships with other organizations.
  • A PIN-based system allows vets and providers to connect anonymously.
  • By pairing vets and therapists in geographic proximity to each other, the decision can be made to transition to in-person meetings should the veteran wish.

Why we do it:

By providing anonymous and immediate access to repeat-treatment, Sound Off directly addresses the issues preventing proper treatment of vets.

Who We Are

Our mission is to help military veterans access the mental health services and support they need, with anonymity, consistency, and quality.

Our leadership includes professionals passionate about getting veterans the help they need. We have years of experience from war zones, the VA, diplomacy, national security, politics and technology.

The problem plaguing veterans’ mental health support is clear; we’re determined to solve it.

Supporting our veterans’ critical needs requires great ideas, dedicated people, and ample resources. Sound Off makes a difference in the lives of veterans every day, but we can’t do it alone – our vets and therapists are essential to serving our mission.

Sydney and I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming response to her story. Sound Off is working to radically change the way we support veterans and we need your help. But today is a day for remembrance - for those lost 16 years ago today and those since.

We will never forget.

On June 9th, Sound Off Founder William Negley’s brother-in-law - Navy SEAL and recently retired member of SEAL Team 6 - Chief Petty Officer William “Bill” Mulder, took his own life. In the attached letter, William’s sister Sydney Negley Mulder writes, “I am writing today to do my best to tell his story, our story, with the hope that I can inspire you to see the need for genuine change in how our country supports our Veterans. Like 47% of his fellow veterans most in need, Bill did not feel he could access mental healthcare. We can do better, it starts with Sound Off, and I need your help.”
