The Real Warriors Campaign, a multimedia public education initiative designed to encourage help-seeking behavior among service members and veterans with invisible wounds, recently launched a mobile site (m.realwarriors.net) offering 24/7 access to psychological health tools and resources.
With today’s increasingly tech-savvy veteran, the mobile site was a natural progression for the campaign. As service members may be skeptical about seeking care, the site addresses perceived barriers to care by allowing users to connect 24/7 with trained health resource consultants at the DCoE Outreach Center (via toll-free number or live chat) as well as to view the campaign’s powerful video profiles directly from their smartphones. The videos feature real service members and veterans who have reached out for care and continue to have successful military or civilian careers. The mobile site also offers more than 90 articles for active duty service members, National Guard and reservists, families, veterans and health professionals – covering topics like combat stress, family reintegration and substance misuse. The mobile site allows visitors to view, download and even order free campaign brochures, posters and other materials directly from their smartphone. We’ve had 3,113 visits to m.realwarriors.net – which accounts for 21 percent of the campaign’s overall website visits since the mobile site’s launch in June.
