HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
How do I use the
Warrior Teletherapy Network?
This service is for medical personnel, first responders, and veterans who have been impacted and who are experiencing increased stress, discomfort, or hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Battle Within has secured funds from private donors to provide free therapy to medical personnel, first responders, and veterans who are in need of psychotherapy. We have contracted with private therapists who are skilled to work with individuals who are in the midst of a crisis, or who are experiencing grief, anxiety, stress, or traumatic symptoms.
We are able to offer no less than six (6) sessions to clients of The Battle Within at no cost to the client. Should clients wish to continue beyond six (6) sessions, an additional four (4) free sessions shall be provided. After the tenth (10th) session therapists can apply for additional support on behalf of their clients, though considerations will have to be made in regards to demand for this program and available funding. Should funding not be available, the therapist and his/her client will need to consider what it looks like to move forward, and what the fee shall be thereafter.
Given the COVID-19 pandemic, this program shall primarily be administered via telehealth (webcam or phone) to protect both clients and contractors, as many of these individuals are providing essential services.
If you are interested in receiving free psychotherapy, please fill out the client sign up form below and a member of our team will reach out to you as soon as possible.
