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.
