Our Bridge Builder Program is the heart of our mission – bridging individuals from our target communities (active military, military veterans, first responders) to services that will help them cope with mental anguish that could result from the traumas they have experienced in their roles serving our country and communities or from difficulty transitioning out of a service career.
The following individuals are eligible to participate in the Bridge Builder Program: any individual currently serving in any branch of the military, any individual who has ever served in any branch of the military, any individual who is working or has worked in any first responder profession, and any immediate family members of these eligible groups.
Eligible individuals can contact 22Zero by calling (863) 229-7284 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. A case manager will be assigned to the individual to determine what services are needed, and then will bridge them to providers. Follow-up is conducted to provide support and encouragement.
The Provider Expansion Program allows us to expand the number of individuals who can provide therapies and treatments that are “user friendly” and effective – such as Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories (RTM) Protocol. We help sponsor the certification of mental health therapists and counselors in these therapies and treatments to make these services more accessible to military and first responders across the nation.
Any licensed mental health counselor who is willing to commit to assisting our target communities is eligible to participate in the Provider Expansion Program.
As these opportunities are not frequent, eligible individuals can contact 22Zero by calling (863) 229-7284 or emailing Dan Jarvis at email@example.com to be added to a waiting list. As certification opportunities arise, eligible counselors on the waiting list will be contacted.
The Battle Buddy Program will provide individuals in our target groups with a sense of community, belonging, and accountability.
All too often, the transition out of a service career leaves individuals with a sense of loneliness and isolation – they then begin to fight the battle of the mind alone.
This program will connect individuals in similar circumstances to each other through this battle - helping provide support that only a sense of camaraderie and solidarity can do. Stay tuned for more information. If you are interested in training to be a Battle Buddy Mentor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
