The Battle Within is always looking for individuals committed to supporting our veterans and first responders. As a new organization, we have a lot of ground to cover in order to provide services to all the warriors in need of finding healing from the moral injuries and traumas they have faced. If you are interested in joining our team, please see below for our current team needs and be sure to check back often as our organization continues to grow.

Contract Clinical Director – Life-changing, remote work with Veterans and First Responders 


We are The Battle Within – a non-profit organization formed by men and women who have served, been there, and know what it’s like to serve, return, and readjust. We’ve felt the exhaustion. We’ve seen our home lives change. And we have walked in holistic 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 Warriors because we have been there.


We create pathways and experiences for men and women – from veterans to first responders to front-line medical personnel – to find hope. Our programs foster therapeutic change and healing for Warriors who have responded to the call. We equip Warriors with tools to live healthier lives so that they can begin or deepen their healing journey. Our most profound purpose is to see Warriors experience an awakening: to walk in freedom, to live lives of connection.
