Who We Serve
The RRPMV provides necessary assistance to veterans suffering long-term effects of mental and emotional stress experienced in combat and other situations. Those with whom we work come from the current conflicts, the Persian Gulf War, the Vietnam War, and earlier military theaters.
We work directly with veterans, their families, the Veterans Administration, and community organizations throughout Wisconsin. . In this way, we spread the word on a grassroots level that there are people who are cognizant of the service that veterans have given and are giving, and that the things they have done for this country are acknowledged and appreciated.
RRPMV sessions are free to all veterans and their family members. Any veteran who has received a diagnosis of military service-related stress or depression disturbance from a Veterans Administration or other private health care provider can be referred to RRPMV services at the location nearest you.
Help for Veterans
Perhaps you’ve said to yourself, “I can handle this on my own” and, in doing so, you’ve found yourself self-medicating through drugs and alcohol to try and avoid the flashbacks, control the anger, or just feel nothing. You’ve also likely found out there is no permanence in that solution.
RRPMV offers you a different choice to deal with military-related trauma by exploring your memories and feelings through expressive art and group counseling in an environment that is safe, without judgment, and supportive of your journey to mental health—and peace.
Help for Military Family Members
If your spouse, parent, or sibling’s military-related trauma has resulted in behaviors that have changed your relationship to that person—or with yourself—RRPMV is here for you.
Our program offers the opportunity for you to explore the secondary effects of military-related trauma and your feelings through expressive art and group counseling in an environment that is safe, without judgment, and supportive of your journey to mental health—and peace.
Volunteer with RRPMV
As RRPMV expands, we may have volunteer opportunities for trained artists who want to assist our program participants with ideation, techniques, and provide other art-related guidance.
From time to time, we may also have the need for volunteer clerical help or event assistance.
If interested in volunteering with RRMPV in any of these capacities, please contact us.
