Abstract:

This book presents the latest in neuroscience and resiliency research alongside the personal stories of military veterans to advocate for an empirically validated training protocol.


• Proposes an empirically validated model for mental fitness training designed to curb an ever-escalating suicide rate among the Armed Forces

• Presents a new approach that incorporates the participatory, hard-working ethos of military culture

• Illustrates military mental health issues by adding veteran narratives to timely research and analysis

• Details secondary issues affecting military mental health, such as the warrior subculture characterized by a high degree of community insularity and antipathy toward displays of emotion or need
