We hope everyone is holding up well during this worldwide pandemic. We hope you are using this time to turn a negative into a positive and enjoying family, the outdoors, or a few minutes of mindfulness and meditation. Oh and bonus, enter our resiliency contest give away!!

In an effort to contribute to the social distancing guidelines and promote resiliency we are announcing an opportunity to have your work added to our Awareness Gi. To be entered into the drawing all you have to do is create an original work of art, post a photo of the art to social media, and tag Work Play Obsession. Winners will receive a free t-shirt and have their artwork permanently added to our Gi. The Gi will be put on display at local academies and hospitals and highlighted on our website http://www.workplayobsession.com helping to raise awareness for PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Suicidal Ideology and other forms of trauma.

The subject matter should include how you are remaining resilient during the Corona Virus outbreak or present a message advocating for brain health / mental health / healing from trauma.

The contest will run until the state of emergency is lifted and there is no limit to the amount of entries one individual can submit. Don’t forget to tag us and use the hashtag #resiliencycontest.


As you visit family and friends this holiday season please feel free to inject the Foundation into your conversation. You can screen capture this page or download the fact sheet as a reference or for print or email. Encourage them to sign up for our newsletter or attend our next event on January 18th. No matter how you choose to contribute, you can make a difference just by raising awareness.

MISSION          Work Play Obsession: All In Foundation is a veteran owned non-profit organization that leverages recreational therapy in the form of Jiu Jitsu, art therapy, and water based activities (surfing & stand up paddle boarding) to help heal the invisible wounds of trauma. 

VISION             To build a community of inclusivity, familiarity, and understanding for military, law enforcement, and first responders. We serve to act as the bridge between identification and diagnosis of illness or injury as well as a continued support network through treatment and beyond through recovery.    

HOW               Our foundation organizes events to raise awareness and help heal Post-Traumatic Stress, anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideology. We do this through providing recreational activities (Jiu Jitsu, Art, Surfing / SUP) which serve to rekindle team bond, shared sense of purpose, and family. Our passion is people. We build a team that connects human-to-human with no judgement or bias in order to defeat the stigma associated with mental health. 

WHO               With over 60 years combined of active duty service, Special Operations experience, and numerous combat tours, our team has seen, experienced, and overcome high stress/traumatic events on the battlefield and at home. As a result, we are familiar with the impact those experiences have on mental health and quality of life post deployment/service.  Our mutual understanding is what makes us different. We are not counselors, doctors, or social workers. We are teammates and survivors.
