    Description

    Recent advances in the science of psychology are rapidly mending the Cartesian mind-body rift. The U.S. Military has recognized the importance of mental fitness to compliment physical fitness. Health-of- the-Force was a strategic priority of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 2009-2010. Wellness enhancement and training is one of the four focus areas of a Department of Defense task force report, The Challenge and the Promise: Strengthening the Force, Preventing Suicide, and Saving Lives; issued in August of 2010.
