VYP’s 8th Annual Light-A-Candle campaign runs from Memorial Day (May 29) thru PTSD Awareness Day (June 27).

Every year from Memorial Day to PTS(D) Awareness Day, VYP engages with local military and civilian communities, collaborating organizations, and media across the country to build awareness around the persistent cost of freedom, and the realities of living with PTS(D) and other service-related trauma. VYP also promotes no-cost access to Mindful Resilience tools, clinically proven to manage symptoms of chronic mental/physical health conditions and improve the wellness of our veterans, active duty, and military families.
