Our troops are coming home. Are we ready to support them?

Multiple deployments. A volatile region. A controversial mission. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have challenged our armed forces in unprecedented ways. When servicemembers and veterans return from battle, many struggle to return to their "normal" lives.

To find out how they're coping, Capella University launched the Joining Forces America project—an extensive survey of servicemembers, families, and mental health professionals.

What we learned?: Needs aren't being met

Our biggest insight? Despite increased national attention on these issues, too many servicemembers and families aren't getting the help they need.

Reason for hope: You can help

Families, friends, coworkers, neighbors, mental health providers—everyone can make a difference. Explore the Joining Forces America survey results to see how. And share your suggestions below.
