Who We Are:

Founded inside San Quentin State Prison in 2012 by an incarcerated Marine, Veterans Healing Veterans from the Inside Out brings incarcerated and free veterans together for mutual support and healing from post traumatic stress and moral injury.Members take part in peer-support groups based on principles of narration therapy, writing and sharing personal stories that probe key relationships, experiences and concepts. Participants support and challenge each other in a process of developing insight into their circumstances and decisions. Each group is a safe-haven where confidentiality is key; the trust that develops is itself a key part of the healing process. Group facilitators come from both sides of the prison walls. This work is complemented by yoga and meditation practices specifically geared to trauma survivors.
