WELCOME

OUR MISSION

To facilitate customized treatment for veterans and retired pro athletes with unseen traumatic injuries from the field, including TBI, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Transition, Addiction and Suicide prevention. 

Whether on the field of play or battlefield, every hit takes a toll and many end their careers suffering in silence. Through our vetted resources, After The Impact provides a clear path to healing for these individuals and their families. Bringing communities together, our path helps create new skills, mend relationships, and generate a renewed sense of purpose.

ATI also provides independent and trusted resources to veterans and players’ families, in addition to one-on-one support from other family members who have similar experiences.
