The Resilient Warrior course engages Student Veterans and Service Members in a 6-week curriculum, delivered in a weekly 1.5-hour class. The course is designed to reduce the impact of stress through a variety of mind-body techniques as well as skill-building exercises scientifically shown to improve medical symptoms, mood, and well-being.
