Summary

Operation Warrior Wellness (OWW), a division of the David Lynch Foundation, offers the Transcendental Meditation-based Resilient Warrior Program, a simple, easy-to-learn, evidence-based approach to relieving symptoms of PTSD and major depression and developing greater resilience to stress. The Resilient Warrior Program is an ideal fit for the military community: Evidence-based, simple to learn, easy to practice, confidential and accessible anywhere.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Over half a million U.S. troops deployed since 2001 suffer from PTSD. Yet less than 20% will receive adequate care due to lack of effective treatments, fear of stigma or insufficient government resources. Half of those with PTSD won't receive any care at all. PTSD can cripple functioning and puts veterans at great risk for violent and self-destructive behavior, including: Alcoholism or drug abuse, Severe depression, anxiety or emotional numbness, Suicide-claims more than 6,500 vet lives/year

How will this project solve this problem?

Since its initial launch in 2010, the OWW initiative has partnered with leading veterans service organizations, Army and Marine bases and VA medical centers across the country to deliver the Resilient Warrior Program to veterans, active-duty personnel and military families in need. The initiative also partners with military colleges to create a new generation of more resilient officers. Thousands of veterans and their families are waiting eagerly-often desperately-to learn.
