Military with PTSD, an Indiana non-profit, is launching the first peer-to-peer support warm-line program for caregivers of wounded warfighters, called Heroes 411.
This is a peer-to-peer support warm-line, where caregivers can call and speak to other caregivers who have “Been there done that,” those who may benefit from peer support and talk to someone who truly understands. Unlike a crisis line, the warm-line is to call to vent, to talk to someone who relates to life with PTSD, and to help find local resources and help.
Heroes 411 purpose is to give telephonic peer support and network online with caregivers of wounded warfighters who are not in mental health crisis but would just like to have a positive and supportive talk.
The Hero 411 Warm Line is for caregivers who need support and who want to talk to someone with a similar background. Warm Line Operators are Caregiver Peers to listen in confidence without judgment or criticism and to provide non-clinical peer driven support. At any time, a Peer operator may help someone through a difficult time or situation or share in a caller’s positive experience.
This Warm Line is for anyone who wants to talk about anything! People just want to be heard! Sometimes we feel lonely or feel so happy about something with nobody to call and tell our great news to. That’s what the Warm Line is all about!
Heroes 411 hours of operation are Tuesday and Thursday from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. CST
