Real Warriors Campaign

The Real Warriors Campaign, sponsored by DCoE, is a multimedia public education effort designed to encourage help-seeking behavior among service members, veterans and military families coping with invisible wounds. The campaign is an integral part of the Defense Department’s overall effort to connect warriors and their families with appropriate care and support for psychological health concerns.

To reach the broadest audience possible, the campaign features a variety of strategies including outreach and partnerships, print materials, media outreach, an interactive website, mobile website and social media. The campaign features stories of real service members who reached out for psychological support or care with successful outcomes, including learning coping skills, maintaining their security clearance and continuing to succeed in their military or civilian careers. These Real Warriors are proving through example that reaching out is a sign of strength that benefits the entire military community.
