Supporting the Employment Success of Returning Service Members with TBI & PTSD

Welcome to America's Heroes at Work - a U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) project that addresses the employment challenges of returning Service Members and Veterans living with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Designed for employers and the workforce development system, this website is your link to information and tools to help returning Service Members and Veterans living with TBI and/or PTSD succeed in the workplace - particularly Service Members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

AH@W Helps Raise PTSD Awareness
