The Invisible Wounds Initiative (IWI) engages Airmen, families, care providers, and leadership to improve the perception of invisible wounds, remove barriers to care, enhance continuum of care processes, and provide an equitable and supportive environment for Airmen living with invisible wounds.
An invisible wound is a cognitive, emotional, or behavioral condition that can be associated with trauma or serious adverse life events. Examples of possible diagnoses are major depressive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
