Message from the Founder and Trustee
“War. The hell where youth and laughter go.” – Siegfried Sasson
The Invictus Foundation’s mission is to provide a full range of behavioral health programs. These services will be designed specifically for the treatment of military related PTSD, TBI and other manifestations of psychological trauma.
There is no denying the emotional and physical toll that PTSD and TBI take on Americans who have experienced combat, most recently, those in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many who have survived shocking violence have made their way back to their families and friends, but part of them are forever stuck on a road in Iraq and Afghanistan. Their experience is interwoven with the thousands of other men and women from wars past who have experienced military related psychological trauma as a result of their honorable service to our nation.
To these men and women and their families, we dedicate the Welcome Home Networks and the Invictus Foundation Centers for Traumatic Brain Injury & Psychological Health. We resolve to help soldiers heal from the invisible wounds of war and to restore their belief that “I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.”
