The Allied Foundation Model Of Care
It’s what makes the difference for those that need it. It’s about suicide prevention. Designed by veterans for veterans.
From intake, to connection with peers on the Allied online community, to the healing retreat, the Allied model of care is founded on behaviour change theory that builds on developing awareness, motivation, and practise of learning to heal from PTS through evidence-based, clinically supported therapeutic interventions.
A Holistic Model Of Care
Allied offers a holistic model of care that supports veterans from contact with the Foundation, to post-retreat integration of personal growth and learning. This makes the model not only unique, but comprehensive as it draws on theories of change, and emerging evidence and models of health-based community development to support sustainable healing and change before and after the healing retreat (Young, 2013).
The Allied Foundation conducts healing retreats that offer veterans an opportunity to connect in person as they develop and practice clinically sound self-regulating techniques, develop community connections, build resilience and reset the nervous system, learn to calm, and plan for their health and integration to sustain change (Hughes, 2019).
During the multi-day retreats, veterans learn and deepen tools for breathing, meditation, yoga and other mind-body understanding that build resilience. Through the healing retreat, community and social support networks are strengthened. The Allied Foundation is uniquely positioned to provide Canadian veterans with the opportunity to explore trauma-informed healing to individually, and in community identify, practice, reflect on and integrate sustainable healing from post-traumatic stress injury.
