the project

Our Mission:

We believe in forging powerful support communities in order to transform military veterans into something unbreakable. We hone every individual through innovative wilderness therapy, cutting-edge virtual reality technology, and peer-to-peer community building. For those who have sacrificed to secure our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, we provide counseling, rehabilitation, and a path to Forge Forward.

Founded by Bric Simpson

As a Utah based non-profit we believe in supporting the citizens of the state we love and call home. It is our hope that with enough funding and research, we can not only effect the Veteran, Law Enforcement, and First Responder Communities but all Utahns who suffer from stress and could benefit from our VR therapy resources.

The future of therapy for veterans

Studies done by the Office of Naval Research found virtual reality therapy reduced stress response measurements from post-traumatic stress disorder by 56-90 percent. We understand PTSD because our organization is owned and operated by veterans and we are dedicated to helping other vets find peace and healing through virtual reality technology.
