HELPING VETERANS COPE WITH PTSD THROUGH MUSIC
Nearly one million of our Military Veterans are afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In fact, more soldiers have committed suicide since the Vietnam War than have died in actual battle. But many are finding hope in an unlikely place: behind the wood and strings of an acoustic guitar. The healing power of music helps soldiers cope. That’s why we provide Veterans with guitars and a forum to learn how to play.
SGS has partnered with the Guitars 4 Vets program! Our instructors are offering 10 free lessons to veterans with PTSD who have passed a course with the program. Loaner guitars can be provided as needed. Whether you are thinking about joining the program yourself, know someone who might, or just want to support the program financially, be sure to click the link below!
WHAT DOES G4V DO?
Over the past twelve years, our organization has refined a guitar instruction program aimed at providing Veterans struggling with physical injuries, PTSD, and other emotional distress a unique therapeutic alternative. G4V pursues its mission to share the healing power of music by providing free guitar instruction, a new acoustic guitar and a guitar accessory kit in a structured program run by volunteers, primarily through the Department of Veterans Affairs facilities and community-based medical centers.
Guitars 4 Vets is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to providing relief to struggling veterans through the healing power of music and community
