Using a veteran’s own self-assessment across critical wellness domains – health, family life, career, finance, etc. – to guide their reintegration journey, the Veteran Wellness Tracker app provides veterans with on-demand 1:1 live coaching via video call from vetted professionals to address high priority life needs, thereby minimizing personal stress and maximizing the veteran’s chances of successful transition from military service to civilian life.
Early detection and mitigation of veteran reintegration issues, as identified by world-renowned Veterans & Families Research Hub (https://www.vfrhub.com/about/), and corroborated by The Veteran Metrics Initiative Study (TVMI) by the Henry M. Jackson Foundation (https://www.hjf.org/tvmi-study-update) is essential for a successful transition to civilian life. The goal of the program is to 1) Heighten self-awareness, and 2) trigger early intervention, facilitated by 1:1 with live coaches online. This is particularly timely as efforts to contain COVID-19 requires self-imposed isolation, a leading indicator of depression and suicide. Our expected outcome for users of the Veteran Wellness Tracker app is to improve their Wellness Score by 10% in one year.
