Invisible Wounds Initiative

The Invisible Wounds Initiative (IWI) was created by Air Force senior leadership to successfully support Airmen and their families coping with Invisible Wounds (IW) by developing an expected environment of understanding, trust, and open discourse among Airmen, their families, their peers, and their Leadership. The goal is to eliminate real and perceived structural, social, internal, and external barriers to care and treat Airmen with dignity throughout the recovery process.
