Moral Injury Retreats


Looking for a weekend experience to connect and heal with other veterans who have experienced moral injury? We have three beautiful and relaxing locations across Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota where we will connect, learn, grow, and heal together.

There is no cost for these retreats other than your travel to and from the retreat. Lodging, meals, and the retreat experience is all free, covered by the Dept. of Veteran Affairs, SSG Fox Suicide Prevention Grant. The only cost you might incur is if you plan an outside activity during your free time. We’ll engage in learning, group discussion, self-reflection, writing, painting, art, rituals, meditation, and fun!
