November Charity of the Month: PsychArmor Institute
November 1, 2017
The Gingrich Foundation
November is a busy time for many Americans as they prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families and friends. But there is another important American holiday to remember this month: Veterans Day. For this reason, The Gingrich Foundation is proud to announce that PsychArmor Institute is our November Charity of the Month.
PsychArmor Institute is a nonprofit that works to provide Americans with the knowledge and resources they need to successfully engage with our nation’s veterans and help them transition back into civilian life. With only 7 percent of Americans serving in the armed forces, there are many citizens who do not fully understand the culture of military life and service. This lack of awareness and experience on behalf of many Americans can often prove to be a tremendous hurdle for returning veterans.
PsychArmor Institute’s free, self-paced online classes seek to bridge that gap in knowledge between the men and women who defend our freedoms and civilian Americans.
A GuideStar Platinum participant, PsychArmor Institute provides free online courses for healthcare providers, employers, teachers and others who work with, live with, or care for veterans. The Institute offers more than 130 courses that cover a wide array of subjects and were developed by nationally recognized experts.
Additionally, the Institute operates a call center staffed by mental health professionals who help employers, educators, health care providers, volunteers, and caregivers understand the challenges veterans face when they return from service and provide insight on how to make reasonable accommodations for them.
Since its founding in 2014, PsychArmor Institute has educated more than 250,000 people in ways to connect with, understand, and help the brave veterans in their lives. This has directly and indirectly helped improve the lives of thousands of veterans and their families.
As we approach Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, please consider assisting our fellow Americans who have made great sacrifices to keep our families, friends, and country safe.
Please join us in supporting PsychArmor Institute this month!
