"I am more relaxed now that I have these tools to utilize that I learned from this course. I will tell my fellow veterans that this course has helped me and that they need to take it to learn how to deal with their stress and anxiety in a healthy way."

Extremely helpful. I especially like that it is active meditation, and active imagery. It's not just letting thoughts float in and out, but the specific guided visualizations have helped to shape my decisions as well as lessen my worry and stress levels. Thank you so much! I appreciate that this course was free to family members of military and firemen. It has made an impact on my life, at the present time and moving forward. Thank you again.
