Project Welcome Home Troops aims to address the intense distress some returning veterans experience. Many of these brave men and women have been repeatedly exposed to traumatic events and life-threatening situations on multiple deployments to combat zones. The International Association for Human Values (IAHV) has developed Project Welcome Home Troops as a resilience-building program specifically designed to address the needs of returning combat veterans.

Brain fog: how trauma, uncertainty and isolation have affected our minds and memory

If you have been feeling "off" you are not alone. What we call brain fog, Catherine Loveday, professor of cognitive neuroscience at the University of Westminster, calls poor “cognitive function”. That covers “everything from our memory, our attention and our ability to problem-solve to our capacity to be creative. Essentially, it’s thinking.”

After a year of lockdown, many of us are finding it hard to think clearly, or remember what happened when. Neuroscientists and behavioural experts explain why

Veterans and service members march over 200 miles for mental health awareness

The “Let's Walk It Out” event started Thursday morning and hope to educate people on the importance of discussing mental health and post-traumatic stress disorder. The 222-mile march represents the 22 veterans who take their own life on a daily basis — and organizer Tizoc “TJ” Jaimes says to them it’s also a symbol of change."

A group of veterans and active service members are hitting the road to bring awareness to mental health within the military and first responder community. According to ABC affiliate WTVD, these service members have organized a 222-mile ruck march from Fayetteville to Camp Lejeune and back. The &ldqu...

30% of Veterans Suffer From PTSD. Science Says Yoga Will Help Them Heal

“All traumatic events are defined by a lack of safety, predictability and control,” Libby said. “For someone who develops post-traumatic stress that perpetuates, the world continues to feel unsafe, unpredictable and uncontrollable, and my own mind and body are also unsafe, uncontrollable and unpredictable. As PTSD is a psycho-physiological condition, it only makes sense that a body-mind approach [like yoga] would be helpful.” #yoga #breathwork, #veteranwellness, #ProjectWelcomeHomeTroops #ptsdawareness

As many as 30% of service members suffer from PTSD. Some are turning to yoga to quiet their minds and heal their wounds.

Self-care is a superpower. When we hit the pause button on life and take time to fill our own tank - we increase energy, focus making us better at work, relationships, communication and being of service to others. Some opportunities to do just this are coming up.

Veterans View: Silencing the stigma and getting help | COMMENTARY

“I knew that my decades in uniform took some kind of toll on me. I also hesitated to reach out. Like so many other service members and civilians, I was confronted with the stigma of asking for help.”

Carroll County, through partnerships between our government (local, state, and federal) and private/public organizations, is committed to taking the time to listen, learn and lead our veterans through potential turbulent waters.

New VA Program Investigates Outdoor Therapy For Veterans

"Among other things, the new legislation calls on the Department of Veterans Affairs to implement programs and policies related to transition assistance, suicide care, mental health education and treatment. More specifically, it requires the VA to establish a task force to investigate the benefits of outdoor recreation therapy for veterans."

The Department of Veterans Affairs will create a task force charged with researching the benefits of outdoor recreation in an effort to help reduce veteran suicides.

Army to review thousands of discharges of veterans who suffered from traumas

Some good news: "Now due to the settlement, Army, National Guard, and Reserve veterans who received a discharge that was downgraded from honorable while having a diagnosis or showing symptoms of military sexual trauma, PTSD, TBI or other behavioral health conditions, might be eligible for relief, according to the Army. Upgrades to a discharge are not guaranteed and will be decided on a case-by-case basis, the service said."

The Army will review thousands of discharge records of veterans affected by military sexual trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder and other behavioral health conditions following a class-action lawsuit, the service announced Tuesday.

For Veterans With PTSD, Life In Isolation Can Lead To Relapses And New Symptoms

We are hearing this from so many of the veterans that we see on #ProjectWelcomeHomeTroops workshops. Staying connected is so critical to well-being. Call a buddy, make sure they are OK, help them connect to support and services.

Months of physical distancing and pandemic anxiety has been especially tough on veterans who were already dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder and other combat-related injuries.

We get the question all the time at #ProjectWelcomeHomeTroops about eligibility for our program from those who served their country, “I didn’t see combat”, lI never deployed”, I am just a Reservist or Guardsman”. The day you made the weighty decision to put your country before yourself is the day you became a Veteran. All are welcome on our program. #thankyouforyourservice

Our Story

Project Welcome Home Troop’s Power Breath Meditation workshop transforms lives restoring wellbeing, mental focus and a renewed sense of connection and purpose. Research indicates that Veterans and Military Members may get relief from chronic and traumatic stress using our scientifically backed breath-based meditation techniques. These powerful techniques address the root of the extreme stress of military life including deployments, traumatic loss, chronic stress and reintegration with family and community. Our program proudly serves military installations, Veterans Affairs Hospitals, Vet Centers, universities and communities around the United States. “After 28 years of silence, the Power Breath workshop helped me to speak up about an assault while in the Air Force. It has totally changed the direction of my life.” – Karen, USAF “I am looking forward to using this technique to jump back into life with more heart and more hope.” - Alex W., U.S. Army

The Greatest Honor - His was to serve his Country, mine is to tell his story. My father and I are going back to Vietnam 50 years after he served two tours in order to tell his story from first-hand experience as a US Army Helicopter Pilot. These will be raw, true stories from some of the location that they happened at. We hope he can come home this time to a better welcome. Please support him and our journey by watching it all on our youtube channel. It is Called "Life With Cameras" We will be making atleast 24 videos and a Documentary from the journey and you will get to hear it all from a man that held it in for 50 years. Thank you for your time. God Bless America and All of our Soldiers
Practical breath, somatic based techniques that empower individuals to enable change.
I teach 5 Element Qi Gong and it is great for PTSD. I would like to start teaching more and started a group in my college where I go to school. Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga, and Meditation are all related and could heal this planet and each of one of us. The first three are moving meditation and to ready for the still and quiet.
Can anyone tell me if the segment "Voices of Resilience" will be broadcast again, or give me a link to it. I watched "Almost Sunrise", but "Voices of Resilience" did not follow. I can't seem to find it on line. Thanks
I just watched this last night. Absolutely amazing and educating. Are there volunteer opportunities available for those of us that would like to help and donate time?
I just saw a presentation on this on ETV. It is excellent and I would say all responsible citizens should see it. I t really opened my eyes. It confronts a crippling issue of returning vets called "Moral Injury". It's really encouraging to know this effort is being promoted.
