Resilience is the ability to adapt well to adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or even significant sources of stress according to the American Psychological Association.  No career puts more of a demand on that ability than military life – not just for those who wear a uniform but also for their family members and civilians who work alongside them.  This website is dedicated to helping our Airmen and Guardians and their families thrive by enhancing personal well-being, optimizing human performance, and promoting a culture of dignity and respect for all.
