Since 2001, U.S. military forces have been engaged in conflicts around the globe. These conflicts have affected the lives of Total Force members, extending to the stress that repetitive deployments have on Service members and their families. This stress can manifest itself in different ways: increased divorce rates, spouse and child abuse, mental distress, substance abuse and suicide.
Comprehensive fitness is designed to improve the psychological health and resilience of Service Members, Families and DoD Civilians. Psychological strength, like physical strength, doesn't just "happen" - it must be trained, practiced and refined.
Vision: A command of fit, resilient Service members, families, civilians and the Total Force coping effectively in a community that thrives in the face of challenges and bounces back from adversity.
Mission: Increase resilience in Service members, family members, civilians and the Total Force through coordinated resilience training, assessment and promotion of resilience.
