Mental Wellness

Through strategic partnerships, we’re addressing the mental wellness needs of our nation’s service members, first responders, and veterans through innovative and empowering treatment methods.


detailed evaluation and treatment

Veterans suffering from traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are offered comprehensive care at MIBH, whose experts in brain health work hand in hand with patients to treat their physical, emotional, and cognitive changes that accompany trauma to the head.


Finding Community

In collaboration with the Disabled American Veterans and Boulder Crest Foundation, we’re connecting wounded veterans from different military conflicts. Over seven days, veterans come together to heal, find renewed strength to overcome their challenges, and begin walking the path of Posttraumatic Growth.


warriors heart

Warriors Heart® provides private treatment to our nation's veterans and first responders​ ​seeking inpatient treatment for chemical dependency, alcohol abuse, with co-occurring psychological disorders relating to post-traumatic stress disorder​,​ or the psychological effects of mild traumatic brain injury.


friends of firefighters

Friends of Firefighters is dedicated to providing free, confidential mental health and wellness services to New York City's active and retired firefighters and their families. Since the attacks on 9/11, they have expanded to meet the growing needs of the FDNY community by providing a range of peer support programs, financial guidance, expert counseling, and wellness services, all of which are offered by a team of professional staff sensitive to and knowledgeable about the firefighter culture.


resiliency workshops

Through the documentary, Brothers at War, we empower our nation’s warfighters to turn post-traumatic stress into posttraumatic growth. Through individual journaling and group discussions that focus on the experiences witnessed during deployment, service members can reintegrate alongside their families who are also invited to participate in these engaging resiliency workshops.


Vets for Vets

In partnership with Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, veterinarians provide free medical care to police K-9s and service dogs utilized by the military, first responders, and veterans.

The Stories


The biggest thing I got from attending was that growth is possible. I learned that I do not have to live my life as a diminished version of myself, but a better version. I also learned better ways to cope with stressors in life. And that I am not alone.
