We are Avalon Action Alliance

Avalon Action Alliance is the post-trauma wellness non-profit helping veterans, first responders and their families gain control over issues related to mental wellness and brain health.

“Avalon” reflects the healing properties of the mythical island of Avalon and our mission of post-trauma wellness. We pair this healing mindset with “Action Alliance” to indicate our work combatting invisible wounds on systemic and personal levels, and the deeply human connection required on both fronts.

Our Integrative Approach


Substance Addiction and Dependency


Stress & Depression

Traumatic Brain Injury & Related Psychological Symptoms

Avalon’s unique value is rooted in the reality that the symptoms and signs of these invisible wounds are interrelated and difficult to diagnose. We provide a single point of contact and one integrative assessment for the symptoms of TBI and PTSD to identify and point veterans and first responders to the most effective clinical or non-clinical pathways they need.

Warrior PATHH created the environment and provided the practices necessary to let go of the pain I have held for 29 years.

MIBH brings a positive and motivating process where the Veteran can understand themselves wholly without judgement from others.

P.J., U.S. Army Veteran

My life has changed. I have new coping mechanisms to help with my past trauma and physical pain. I feel so much better.

Founding The Alliance

Philanthropist Bernie Marcus founded Avalon and was joined by fellow The Home Depot founder, Arthur M. Blank, to jointly seed this national effort. Gary Sinise Foundation and an impressive group of other generous donors including the Goldring Foundation, the Manat Family Foundation, Lockheed Martin, Veterans United Foundation, Anthony Pratt, Jim Irsay, and USAA joins these renowned entrepreneurs.

It’s an urgent tragedy that so many of our nation’s defenders are battling invisible wounds without proper care. We’re driving hard to bring them transformational treatments and training befitting their service, strength and lifelong potential.




Winning the Battle Within

Since 2001, about 1 of every 3 veterans have returned home from war with invisible wounds: symptoms of PTSD and traumatic brain injury. And 6,146 veterans die by suicide annually.

The Avalon Identity

Our logo, “Invisible Storm”, embodies a warrior’s strength and determination to face their mental wellbeing with an optimistic forward view. The human brain is a complex yet solvable puzzle and the star in the center represents the healing destination on a journey that requires courage and perseverance. It honors the brain’s energy, the mind’s ultimate power, and the often-winding journey to a successful solution.
