Hidden Battles Foundation


Hidden Battles is a nonprofit organization that strives to help preserve the healthy minds of active and retired Military/Veterans, Fire Fighters, Law Enforcement, EMS, 911 Dispatch, and Nurses. Through community based & peer lead activity driven treatment and counseling for depression, suicidal tendencies, and PTSD. We strive to improve the mental health of our heroes and their loved ones.

Our defenders are absorbing the horrors of their occupations. They struggle with the hidden battles fought in their minds on a daily basis. Whether it is the horrors of war, personal injury or a fatal car crash, the effects are everlasting. Over the course of their careers, the stress piles up to sometimes a fatal level. 

“We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

– George Orwell

What We Do

Hidden Battles, in partnership with both veteran and civilian organizations, offer monthly, confidential, meetings amongst your peers, in a safe environment, helping you work to cope with your internal struggle. Through a military-type “buddy system”, we will work to make sure you are not alone in your battle. Offering workshops for not only our defenders but for the families and friends of those suffering or who have lost loved ones to suicide.

Hidden Battles hosts community events in partnership with other related organizations to raise awareness and prevention because as a community it is our duty to keep our defenders safe.
