MORE INFORMATION

JOSEPH P. DWYER VETERANS PEER SUPPORT PROJECT

Named to honor the memory of an Iraq war Untitledhero from Mount Sinai, NY, the Joseph P. Dwyer Veteran Peer Support Project is a peer-to-peer program for Veterans facing the challenges of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Launched in 2012 as a pilot partnership between our Suffolk County United Veterans program and the Suffolk County Veterans Service Agency, the Dwyer Project takes a confidential, one-on-one, peer-to-peer approach that has rapidly captured the attention and support of both veterans and mental health professionals statewide and across the nation.

The program has steadily demonstrated that the peer-to-peer model holds tremendous, untapped value as a tool for helping Veterans transition and reintegrate back into civilian life.


suffolk-logoThrough Suffolk County United Veterans, a program of the Association for Mental Health and Wellness, we are proud to have taken a leadership role in piloting this innovative program that will soon serve as a national model for Veterans’ assistance. We are also indebted to the Suffolk County Veterans Service Agency for the critical role they have played as a partner in supporting the Joseph P. Dwyer Veterans Peer Support Project.

“During my four years of service in the U.S. Marines, including two deployments in Iraq, I was shot by a sniper and received a Purple Heart award. The Joseph P. Dwyer Peer Support Project was critical in assisting me with post-service transition issues. They gave me an understanding of life after the military and helped me to regain personal stability. I became able to effectively apply my military skills into civilian life.” ~ Roger
