The Soldiers Project NW has put out an open call for licensed mental health counselors in private practice who want to volunteer their time to work with troops returning from or serving in Iraq or Afghanistan and their loved ones.

Organizers are holding a meeting on Feb. 12 for therapists to learn about the project and learn about specific health issues related to the service members and their families (including parents, children, spouses and significant others).

The project, which started in Western Washington in February 2008, is a group of psychotherapists from various disciplines who volunteer at least one hour per week to offer confidential counseling. It’s totally volunteer-run and receives no funding.

What: The Soldiers Project NW information session

Where: First United Methodist Church of Tacoma, 621 Tacoma Ave. S.

When: Thursday, Feb. 12, 6-8:30 p.m.

RSVP/Contact: or 206–290–1035
