OUTSIDE THE WIRE IS PROUD TO BE A PART OF U.S.VETS
The nation’s largest nonprofit provider of comprehensive services to homeless and at-risk veterans and their families.

WHAT IS OUTSIDE THE WIRE?

U.S.VETS created Outside the Wire (OTW) to provide preventative and early mental health treatment to veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

HOW CAN OTW HELP YOU?

U.S.VETS created Outside the Wire (OTW) to provide preventative and early mental health treatment to veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Through partnerships with community colleges and technical schools throughout Southern California, OTW offers individual and group therapy to student veterans and their families. By providing training on military- and veteran-specific issues to psychology trainees and social work interns, OTW is creating a strong network of mental health professionals that are better equipped to help veterans and their families manage the pressures of combat-related stressors and post-war adjustments.

Outside the Wire provides services to post-9/11 veterans and their families who are struggling with making the adjustment back to civilian life. Veterans who are experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, or any other psychological issues relating to their service are encouraged to contact us for more information.
