The Balanced Veterans Network is far more than a non-profit organization; it is also a thriving community of veterans and their family members. BVN provides education to help empower veterans to use alternative therapies to combat veteran issues plaguing our community. Suicide, addiction, and homelessness are just a few of the issues that BVN addresses. We have a place for those who even worry about transitioning out of service for a new purpose. We Are You!
Current medical research has proven that many alternative therapies can treat mental health issues such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. These conditions are prevalent in the veteran community, which is currently struggling to find a viable long-term solution. Balanced Veterans Network wholeheartedly believes that medication alone is not the answer. A healthy community, conversation, and alternative healing practices can be vital to a meaningful, balanced life.
The physical, mental, and emotional cost of preserving the United States is a burden carried by less than 10% of our nation’s population. Those that have sacrificed so much deserve an opportunity to live a balanced and happy life.
We offer support with five initiatives to help veterans and their families find tools to live a more balanced life: Community, Mental Wellness, Movement, Operation 1620, and Project Triangle.
