Mindfulness for the Military

Military Program

We are a Nonprofit Organization dedicated to improving the mental health of the community.

Military Program


During their time in the military, service members must maintain a peak level of performance to withstand the many challenges of war and combat that they may face. Additionally, service members are often subjected to a high level of trauma through the immense acts of violence and death that they witness. Through the combination of these challenges during their time in the military, service members must receive the mental and physical support that they need to continue to serve their country. Therefore, by implementing a mindfulness-based preventative measure with the YOG Foundation, military service members can improve their performance on the job and reduce the mental impacts of the difficulties that they may face as well.

A Vision for a More Mindful Future

In the United States, there are currently over 1.3 million service members active. During their time in the military, they are exposed to a wide range of incidents, including gunfire, bombs, and death. With a constant threat to their safety, this puts military service members under extreme stress, which can result in a wide range of mental health issues down the line, particularly posttraumatic stress disorder. Given the numerous threats that military service members face in the line of duty, by implementing a mindfulness program with the YOG Foundation, service members can gain a multitude of benefits both physically and mentally.
