Brave, Strong, & True
With a unique blend of personal narratives and current research, in Brave, Strong, & True: The Modern Warrior’s Battle for Balance, author Dr. Kate Hendricks Thomas explores this question: what if we could train America’s service members to succeed in mental battles as we do in physical ones?
This book unpacks the possibility of mental fitness training programs that shift the paradigm from treatment to resilience.

Her research provides a wealth of knowledge and practical guidance for veterans, their family members, military commands, mental health professionals, and everyday citizens who can identify with the title “warrior.”
