What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We create healthy transitions. Veterans transitioning to civilian life need support in three critical and often overlooked areas: finding a renewed sense of purpose, mindfulness training to build resilience, and a sense of community. We’re committed to providing all three through our programs and events.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

1-Day Pathfinder Event

These events offer healing and skill-building utilizing powerful tools like physical activity, nature, mindfulness, meditation and camaraderie.  Pathfinder events, held throughout the year, welcomes first-timers to Veteran's PATH, and serves as an ongoing support network for returning veterans.  This program is provided to veterans free of cost.

Now fully online, our anchor program combines a 5-day intensive with a 15-week practice period, supporting veterans struggling with reintegration issues that can include post-traumatic stress, military sexual trauma, substance abuse, and family/caregiver matters. We integrate meditation and mindfulness practices into a disciplined, daily routine so that, together, veterans can open up about experiences and heal inner conflicts they never thought possible.

The Chopra Foundation and Veteran’s PATH are partnering to provide one million veterans with access to proven mind-body tools and support via classes, workshops and other programs. Additionally, the partnership will use innovative technologies to provide immediate, confidential 24/7 support – for veterans by veterans – so that all veterans can get the help they need, when they need it. The ultimate goal is to significantly reduce negative outcomes and improve overall resilience, mental health, and well-being for veterans and their families.
