Moral Injury

The War Inside

Moral injury is the internal pain we may feel when life’s experiences violate our own understanding of right and wrong. This wounding of the soul may leave us feeling emotionally broken, distrustful of others or not being able to trust our self. Such anchors on our souls limit our capacity to live fully and to live at peace.

We are bringing education, training and peer groups to help our Veterans who are working on finding and maintaining permanent housing (SSVF). It is recognized that for some Veterans, the symptoms of moral injuries (anger, isolation, and/or destructive behaviors as self-punishment) might be barriers to sustained housing.

Our focus is on creating community awareness of moral injury, offering training so as to create a moral injury network in the communities we serve, and providing training and support for moral injury healing groups.
