The Wellness Model of Magnus
Five Performance Pillars
Less than 2% of our nation’s population serve in the Armed Services. Veterans and Veteran Families share a unique background, creating a specific segment within our nation with unique care requirements. Our elite Special Operations Forces have recognized this truth for the past several years, creating an innovative approach to Warrior and Warrior Family wellness and performance through the U.S. Special Operations Command Preservation of the Force and Family (POTFF) initiative. POTFF was created to ensure our elite Warriors and their Families remain healthy, whole, and well through two decades of continuous combat operations.
Our founders have witnessed the impact of POTFF on our brothers and sisters-at-arms and understand the incredible potential that this approach has for our Veterans and their Families. While POTFF inspired our movement, Veteran populations have needs that are different from our active duty brothers and sisters. Once our Veterans exit active service, they are often without the brotherhood and sisterhood that sustained them for so long. Furthermore, the gap between our military and non-military families adds to the realization of that loss. Some have connected the rise in veteran morbidity to that gap. Magnus is committed to bridging that gap to fully reconnect our Warriors to our Communities while addressing the whole person and family by using the Five Performance Pillars.
Comprehensive Health Performance
Optimal performance starts with overall health and wellness, including evidence-based preventive medical screening and individualized treatment plans developed in partnership between providers and patients.
The psychological impacts of war are specific to the veteran and his/her family. Treatment at the MVWC will be provided by highly trained and experienced mental health specialists.
Key human performance measures include strength, agility, flexibility, and balanced nutrition. MVWC facilities and specialized staff will help members achieve fitness goals.
Veterans and their families come from every spiritual and religious background. Regardless of affiliation, connecting veterans and their families to a higher purpose provides meaning to their sacrifices and establishes a framework for healing.
