Moral Injury Support Network For Servicewomen, Inc. (MISNS , pronounced “missions”) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation based in North Carolina and organized for the purpose of providing support to women veterans, current servicewomen, and families suffering from moral injury (MI). We do this by conducting research, educating support providers on the effects and treatment mechanisms of MI, and providing direct support through the Tubman Chaplain Network, a dedicated group of women chaplains.
Moral injury occurs when someone experiences a traumatic event that shakes them to their core and deeply violates their sense of right and wrong. Originally coined as a term to explain what happens to a soldier’s soul as a result of killing in combat, many have come to see that moral injury can occur through a variety of experiences, including sexual assault, retaliation for reporting violations of regulations, gender harassment, and other hurtful events. There is a strong connection between moral injury and suicide, homelessness, substance abuse, and physical ailments. We believe that effective
support to the morally injured could go a long ways towards eliminating veteran suicide.
Our mission is to transform the lives of millions of women veterans and families affected by moral injury. Our partners in this effort are chaplains, psychologists, social workers, community health providers, and non-profit groups. Our reach extends beyond the United States and includes both veterans and support providers in Canada, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand. Our network of women that we have helped and support providers who have joined our team continues to
grow each year.
