The Military Resilience Project
The Military Resilience Project believes that resiliency and reintegration have as much to do with the community as it does those who have served. They focus on weaving Prevention, Advocacy, and Sustainability into all areas of support to facilitate the best possible outcomes. All too often there is a focus on the "problems" that a service member, veteran, or military family may be challenged by, and less of a focus on creating spaces and opportunities for our military to be heard in the everyday. Their Philosophy is to provide integrative behavioral health solutions that revolve around the concept of building strength and sustainability, from micro to macro levels of functionality.
