And yet, there are few resources for civilians and veterans to confront the moral and ethical challenges together. Stories We Carry aims to start conversations that create community.

Stories We Carry is not: Therapy. Counseling. Political. Judgment.Made possible by a grant from the The New York Community Trust, Stories We Carry is a Mental Health Association of NYC Veterans Mental Health Coalition initiative.Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Rhetoric in Society.
