Boston VA helps Veterans address the stigma of mental health problems

The Silent No More campaign was born out of the idea that no Veteran should suffer in silence from a mental illness of any kind. The campaign is comprised of photographs of Veterans holding up signs of encouragement and the words they wished they heard when they were at a crossroads in their own lives, wondering if they should ask for the help they needed, which some perceived as weak, cowardly, and shameful.

The campaign has been featured across the Boston VA Healthcare System, but the CEWC would like the campaign to be showcased nationally, in an attempt to attract Veterans from across the country to VA mental health services so that no Veteran has to suffer in silence. Their lives are too important, their accomplishments too great, and their stories too enthralling for them not to be shared with Veterans and civilians alike.
