Real Warriors Campaign

Text on banner: Real Warriors, Real Battles, Real Strength

The Real Warriors Campaign promotes a culture of support for psychological health by encouraging the military community to reach out for help whether coping with the daily stresses of military life, or concerns like depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder. Founded in 2009, the campaign supports the Defense Department’s Psychological Health Center of Excellence in its mission to break the stigma associated with psychological health concerns and encourage those who are coping with a psychological health concern to seek help. The campaign links service members, veterans and their families with care and provides free, confidential resources including online articles, print materials, videos and podcasts. If you or someone you know is coping with any concerns, know that reaching out is a sign of strength.

Infographic about Depression in Men reads: Depression, even severe depression is treatable.  Approximately 6 million American men suffer from a depressive disorder annually.  Service members returning from combat deployments have an increased risk of developing depression.  Men are less likely than women to admit to negative mood states or to seek treatment for mental health issues.  Almost 9% of men in the U.S. feel anxious or depressed day to day.  Fewer than half of those men seek help from a mental health professional or take medication.  Men may experience depression symptoms beyond the traditional symptoms of low mood, withdrawal and sleep problems, including: Anger and irritability, substance misuse and rist taking behaviors.  The lifetime prevalence rate for alcohol dependence is twice as high in men as it is in women.  Men take their own lives at nearly 4 times the rate that women do. Remember depression is treatable.
