Resilient Warrior

In 2015, Home Base launched a series of educational, mind-body courses called Resilient Warrior that help veterans manage their stress more effectively. Resilient Warrior is a mind-body program developed by Home Base in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine (BHI). The fundamental principle of this program is that while people may not be able to control stressful events, they can learn to control their response to stress and, in turn, improve their ability to adapt more effectively to stress (or build resilience).
