Resiliency - Building a Stronger You

Joint Base San Antonio wants all service members, civilians, contractors, and their families to be Resilient.

One definition of resilience is the ability to withstand, adapt, recover and/or grow in the face of challenges and demands.

Becoming resilient requires a comprehensive approach that focuses on the mind, body and spirit working together ... and it is not a journey you have to undertake alone.

JBSA is here to help! - If you are in need of help at any time while stationed at JBSA, reach out to one of the many helping agencies and resources listed here.

The goal of Comprehensive Airman Fitness (CAF) is to help our Airmen, Air Force civilians and family members become more resilient and better-equipped to deal with the rigors of military life. This is accomplished by reinforcing the four pillars of fitness and by creating a sense of belonging on installations through the five Cs.
Total Force Fitness (TFF) is a framework for building and maintaining health, readiness, and performance in the Department of Defense. It views health, wellness, and resilience as a holistic concept where optimal performance requires a connection between mind, body, spirit, and family/social relationships.

R2 provides training and resources to the Army Family to enhance resilience and optimize performance. R2 reinforces the Army Values, beliefs and attitudes, and educates members of the Army team about the importance of building connections with each other, taking care of one another, and being there to support fellow Soldiers.


The Operational Stress Control Program maintains a robust strategic communications effort to promote comprehensive wellness and stress navigation throughout the Fleet. Every Sailor, Every Day is OPNAV N171's FY15 integrated communications campaign encouraging all Sailors, leaders, families and members of the Navy community to strengthen their connections with those around them.

Master Resilience Training

Master Resilience Training (MRT) is a key component of the Comprehensive Airman Fitness (CAF) and Comprehensive Solider and Family Fitness (CSF2) program. Master Resilience Training teaches resilience skills to enhance performance and increase resiliency, both individually and collectively. The Master Resilience Training Course is an established training program that has demonstrated efficacy in reducing behavioral health problems.

Resilience is critical for success and well-being, and patrons will learn about the core factors that predict resilience, with a specific focus on the factors that are amenable to change. Service members who attend will serve as subject matter experts for their commanders.

Skills learned include goal setting, energy management, emotion awareness and regulation, impulse control, de-catastrophizing, putting it in perspective, effective communication, challenging negative beliefs, problem solving, and real time resilience. Additionally, several techniques proven successful by elite sports figures and athletes will be introduced, such as imagining success, goal setting, and energy management.
