Very few programs currently exist which are specifically tailored for women veterans. In 2016, the M-SPAN team initiated a Needs Assessment to identify the key concerns shared by Post-9/11 women veterans. These included challenges in:
- Reintegrating to civilian life
- Finding fulfillment in the professional world
- Building a supportive community of other women veterans
- Managing stress in healthy ways
After Her Service addresses each of these areas through a skill-building resiliency retreat paired with individualized coaching that focuses on professional success.
