We’re passionate about military spouse wellness, and we recognized a need to specifically address some of the tougher topics that our community deals with. We often show brave faces out in our communities because we want to be strong, keeping what we perceive as weakness behind closed doors. We isolate ourselves in an effort to be strong.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
We want military spouses to know that they are not alone. Others have walked in your shoes or share the same struggles. We know you can be strong and handle things on your own, but you don’t have to. Sometimes the strongest, most courageous thing you can do is seek help.
INTRODUCING WELLNESS UNFILTERED
Wellness Unfiltered™, is a multifaceted program addressing the tougher, harder-to-discuss wellness topics affecting military spouses, including substance abuse, suicide ideation, trauma, postpartum depression, misscarriage, eating disorders, mental illness, terminal/chronic illness, sexual intimacy, death in the family, and more.
Since the beginning, InDependent has always tried to address wellness from many different angles and create a space where military spouses can find information on topics beyond the typical “eat right and move your body” approach. From having a sex therapist speak about maintaining intimacy in a marriage after a long separation during our 2016 virtual InDependent Wellness Summit™, to sharing stories of going through miscarriage, we’ve never shied away from including tough subject matters in our programming. But, we realized we never fully committed to addressing these areas of wellness either.
WELLNESS UNFILTERED IS OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
That’s where Wellness Unfiltered™ comes in. This program is our commitment to you to create dialog, connect you to experts, and provide a formal structure to boldly address the areas of wellness that we all want to have conversations about, but sometimes don’t want to bring up. We’ll be sharing stories of military spouses who have gone through and overcome these harder-to-talk-about challenges. We’ll be creating content with experts to educate and connect you, your family, and the military community with resources.
Our hope is that by creating Wellness Unfiltered™ we can provide you with the knowledge, confidence, and language necessary to proactively build a stronger, thriving military community.
InDependent is by military spouses, for military spouses and we’ll be doing this together, because Together We’re InDependent™.
