The Courage Foundation V.I.P. program is available for both male and female veterans or active duty with symptoms of post-traumatic stress. No clinical diagnosis or prior mental health care is required to attend.
The ideal candidate is a warrior who is determined to win their personal battles, has a willingness to accept coaching and a desire to embrace the process. A warrior who has a vision of what they want despite not knowing how to get there and a passion to live fully.
How does VIP work?
Resilience to stress is associated consistently with at least 6 psychosocial factors: active coping methods, regular physical exercise, a positive outlook, a moral compass, social support, and cognitive flexibility. Unbeatable Mind Integrated Training provides a framework and tools to develop these factors, and potentially reduce the symptoms of PTS in veterans.
CDR. Mark Divine, founder of The Courage Foundation and retired Navy SEAL, has spent his post-Navy career helping people from all walks of life break through barriers to develop resilience and reach peak levels of performance. His integrated warrior development program, Unbeatable Mind, has been effective in increasing mental toughness and emotional resiliency in Navy SEAL candidates, professional athletes and entrepreneurs.
The Courage Foundation was established to provide this transformative training to veterans with post-traumatic stress. Our programs bring veterans together to train toward common goals, building trust, comradery, social support and restoring purpose. The training integrates physical, mental, emotional, intuition/awareness and spiritual aspects of one’s being through simple and highly effective self-administered training tools.
