Active Duty and Veterans

By providing life coaches to veterans, CFF makes for a valuable resource to those who are looking to make a successful transition back to civilian life. Many veterans face significant challenges when it comes to finding employment, establishing relationships, PTSD, and coping with the stress and trauma that can come with serving in the military. A CFF life coach can provide personalized support and guidance to help veterans navigate these challenges and achieve their goals. By working with a CFF life coach, veterans can identify their strengths, develop a plan for success, and receive ongoing accountability and support. With the help of a CFF life coach, veterans can build a strong foundation for a fulfilling and successful life outside of the military.

The mental health challenges faced by veterans can have a significant impact on their quality of life. Veterans with mental health conditions are more likely to experience homelessness, unemployment, and relationship problems.

There are a number of factors that can contribute to the mental health challenges faced by veterans. These include:

  • The trauma of combat
  • The stress of deployment
  • The difficulty of transitioning to civilian life
  • The lack of access to mental health care

CFF coaches can assist veterans in many ways, including:

  • Transitioning to civilian life: They can help veterans adjust to the challenges of civilian life, such as finding a job, managing finances, and building relationships.
  • Coping with trauma: Veterans may experience trauma as a result of their military service. CFF can help them develop coping mechanisms and manage stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Setting and achieving goals: CFF coaches can help veterans set realistic goals and develop a plan to achieve them. This can be helpful for veterans who are struggling with direction or motivation.
  • Improving relationships: Can help veterans improve their relationships with family and friends. This can be especially helpful for veterans who have experienced difficulties due to their military service.
  • Finding purpose and meaning: Can help veterans find purpose and meaning in their lives. This can be especially helpful for veterans who are struggling with feelings of emptiness or isolation.

In addition to these general benefits, CFF coaches can also provide specialized support for veterans who are facing specific challenges, such as:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): helps veterans with PTSD develop coping mechanisms and manage their symptoms.
  • Substance abuse: helps veterans with substance abuse problems to develop a plan for recovery.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, 20% of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Among veterans who have served in combat, the rate of PTSD is even higher, at 28%.

PTSD is not the only mental health condition that veterans are at risk for. Depression, anxiety, and substance abuse are also common among veterans.

The suicide rate among veterans is also significantly higher than the rate among the general population. In 2020, the suicide rate among male veterans was 30.5 per 100,000, compared to 18.7 per 100,000 for male civilians.
