Challenge America Music therapy: Healing veterans through music

Challenge America Music Opportunities equips veterans with the tools they need to cope with the trauma of their military experience. Designed specifically for veterans who struggle with post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury, each participant receives three days of expert-led music therapy, a high quality acoustic guitar, and access to our exclusive online networking tools as well as our growing library of free video tutorials on guitar, songwriting, and mindfulness. We provide these services to veterans for free. This is just one of the ways Challenge America works to realize its vision that all service members, veterans and their families have access to the resources they need to live productive, dignified lives.
