Physical and Mental Health
Poor mental health is a risk factor for chronic physical conditions.
People with chronic physical conditions are at risk of developing poor mental health.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines: Health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
The WHO states that “there is no health without mental health”
Five Types of Wellness
- Intellectual fitness: being creative and open to new ideas.
- Emotional fitness: how well you handle stress
- Social fitness: being able to interact with others.
- Physical fitness: being in good condition and having good health.
- Spiritual fitness: A general sense of well being.
- To assist Veterans in achieving overall health goals.
Never Quit TrainingOur motto of Never Quit Training is a tool used to encourage Veterans to maintain a high level of physical fitness. This also includes Veterans assisting others to achieve their physical fitness goals.
Through donations Operation Combat Boots will purchase memberships for Utah Veterans.
