Mindful : February 2014
February 2014 mindful 17 Illustration by Gavin Potenza Veterans Find a Place on Facebook Facebook has teamed up with Stan- ford’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) to create a one-stop online resource for veterans needing suppor t and assistance. It’s an extension of CCARE’s effor ts to help veter- ans find what they need to acclimatize to life back home. Veterans Resources—go to apps.face- book.com/veterans-resources—addresses three key areas of concern for veterans returning to civilian life: employment and education, community, and well-being. It provides information from traditional sources, such as the Depar tment of Veter- ans Affairs, but also includes links to non- profits like The Wounded Warrior Project and ser ves as a clearinghouse for locally based veterans’ suppor t groups. Emma Seppala, associate director at CCARE, has helped veterans recently returned from Iraq and Afghanistan recover from trauma using meditation, movement, and breathing. Par ticipants told her that militar y websites are difficult to navigate and are virtual spaces they pre- fer to avoid. Facebook, on the other hand, “is a more friendly, nonthreatening place,” says Seppala. Veterans who scan Facebook can find everything from the humorous Awesome Shit My Drill Sergeant Said to the informa- tive PTSD: Don’t Wait Until it Breaks You. In these spaces veterans can chat, post anonymously, and offer advice and suppor t to fellow veterans. “Veterans are going to these spots ever y day to find help and companion- ship,” Seppala says. “It tells them, ‘you are not alone.’” ● OVERHEARD “I hate the phrase ‘having it all’—no one has it all, and trying to is the surest way to make yourself feel like a failure. I try to think of it as ‘having what matters.’ What matters to me right now are my family and my work. Keeping focused on the two things I care about helps me not beat myself up for the 17 things I’m not doing at any given moment.” — Cindi Leive, editor- in-chief of Glamour magazine
