Resilient Warrior training offered to Airmen

HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – Airmen here can attend a six-session Resilient Warrior course at the 66th Medical Squadron beginning April 30.

“The course is designed to reduce the impact of stress for Airmen through a variety of mind-body techniques as well as skill-building exercises that are scientifically shown to improve medical symptoms, mood and well-being,” said Maj. Maureen Kimsey, Mental Health Flight commander. “This provides our Airmen with an excellent opportunity to strengthen their resiliency.”

The course, provided by the Home Base Program, engages service members in a six-week curriculum through weekly 1.5-hour classes.

The sessions are April 30, May 7, May 14, May 21, June 4 and June 11 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. and open to military members in any career field.

“Regardless of their background, all Airmen experience adversity and this training will help them through it,” Kimsey said. “Specifically, the course will help overcome stressors they face before, during and after a deployment.”

The Resilient Warrior course is open to 25 Airmen. Attendees are asked to wear civilian clothes during the training. Registration is required.

According to the organization’s website, “Home Base is dedicated to healing the invisible wounds for veterans, service members and their families through world-class clinical care, wellness, education and research.”
