We're all fighting
a battle within.

But we don't have to fight it alone.

We create pathways and experiences for men and women - from veterans to first responders to frontline medical personnel - to find hope.



Where every Veteran and First Responder receives the resources, time, and community to heal.

The Battle Within is for

life’s real heroes. Those who gave

their time, energy, and
livelihoods for others.

Veterans of the United States
Armed Forces, Active Duty
military, Police Officers,
Firefighters, Emergency
Medical Technicians, frontline
health-care workers.

Anyone whose job does not
allow them to say “no” when
called upon.

For the tired. For the
wounded. For those haunted
by traumatic experiences lived
while in service to others.

Meeting you where you are to get you where you need to be.

The Revenant Journey

A five-day group therapy program created by fellow Veterans and First Responders to help others suffering from PTSD understand the traumas they have endured in service to others, provide an introduction to integrative tools that set the stage for healing, and develop a community of support.


Frontline Therapy Network

Our approach is to interview each Veteran and First Responder to determine the proper therapy and therapist that will best serve their needs from our vetted referral network of well-qualified mental health providers. TBW then provides six free therapy sessions to begin the therapeutic relationship and treat their traumas.

KC Warrior Coalition

Is comprised of 90-day classes built to fit into Veteran and First Responder's busy lives and provided by partner organizations that develop into habit the tools introduced during the Revenant Journey, such as fitness, equine, meditation, spiritual, nutrition, and arts programs.

How The Battle Within is different

We understand that sometimes the biggest barrier is yourself.

The Battle Within - an organization formed by men and women who have served, who have been there, who know what it’s like to give, return, and readjust. We’ve felt the exhaustion. We’ve seen our home lives change. And we have walked in recovery. Our mission is to promote mental
health in the lives of people who have continually been thrust into extraordinary circumstances. Our heart beats for you, because we have been there.
