Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a program that provides support for U.S. service members and veterans after returning home from war. The goal is to help soldiers manage the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder in a safe, supportive environment. The host agency is Mariposa Women and Family Center located in San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, California. The proposed program, Art of War, strives to use any form of art as a tool to help military personnel process their traumatic experiences as they transition from war zones to family and community life. A potential funding source with a large focus on the mental health and well-being of service members, veterans, and their families was identified as a potential funding source. Actual submission and/or funding was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
