JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A national group based in Jacksonville is helping local veterans cope with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Wounded Warrior Project helps veterans with different injuries, from amputations to wounds you cannot see, like PTSD. 

The organization uses different methods to treat PTSD: counseling sessions, online connections, group outings, even retreats.

The goal is to help veterans better connect with loved ones and co-workers to help them cope with the memories from war zones.

The Wounded Warrior Project also helps transition military veterans into the civilian workforce.

A spokesperson for the organization tells Action News the group is expanding its facility in Jacksonville.  It's also growing operations outside of the city, with new offices opening in several cities around the country.
