For Veterans

Are you experiencing stress, anxiety, fear, depression, isolation and don’t know where to get the support you need?

IWAP offers you the option to talk to a peer and discuss referral options as well as receive high touch case management to ensure you have access to services that will meet your needs.

For the Family Members/Caregivers

Family Members and caregivers are the front line for supporting the Veteran and often need some support themselves. If you are a family member supporting an Illinois Veteran and are experiencing stress, anxiety, and other emotional challenges related to caring for your Veteran, we can connect you to services that will support your needs.

Our Goal

The goal of IWAP is to support our Illinois Veterans and their families through the emotional challenges of life’s transitions and impacts of PTSD, TBI, and other emotional challenges they may be facing, ensuring no Veteran is left behind.
