About Hidden Battles Foundation
Hidden Battles is a non-profit organization that strives to help preserve the healthy minds of veterans, fire fighters, police officers and first responders through treatment and counseling for depression, suicidal tendencies and PTSD.
Hidden Battles’ primary goal is to raise awareness of suicide related deaths in our defenders of freedom and public safety. The cause of these deaths is often related to mental health issues stemming from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, job related stress, traumatic brain injuries and the daily struggle of separating military service back to civilian life.
What We Do
Hidden Battles, in partnership with both veteran and civilian organizations, offer monthly, confidential, meetings amongst your peers, in a safe environment, helping you work to cope with your internal struggle. Through a military type “buddy system”, we will work to make sure you are not alone in your battle. Offering workshops for not only our defenders but for the families and friends of those suffering or have lost love ones to suicide.
Hidden Battles will host community events in partnership with other related organizations to raise awareness and prevention, because as a community it is our duty to keep our defenders safe.
In the near future Hidden Battles will offer scholarships to qualified applicants to attend continuing education on mental illness. In partnership with local summer camps, it is the goal of Hidden Battles to send surviving children of those lost to suicide to activity driven camps. Funds will be donated to local Service Dog organizations to assist with providing service dogs to those in need.
Hidden Battles is a component fund of the Greater Lowell Community Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
