The apps with most usage among our users are sharpenWARRIOR and sharpenFAMILY – the only two verticals out on the market thus far.
The unfortunate reality is that many veterans suffer from mental health and substance use disorders problems and many of them do not receive treatment. With Sharpen, and specifically sharpenWARRIOR, we provide the veteran community a platform that will help them find hope and healing. Most importantly, we help the veteran’s spouse find resources, support and helpful tools to improve self-care.
