Tyndall has created a people first, mission always avenue to help educate Team Tyndall members about resiliency. In a time period when suicide rates are rising, it has never been more vital to take care of one another. Not only is it important that we utilize the wingman concept, but also have a full understanding of what resiliency means. As members of the Armed Forces, there will be times when we will be faced with adversities. These hardships are not limited to being away from family, a death of a loved one, to daily stressors on the job, or relationship troubles. Regardless of the issue, it is important we know how to manage it. As wingmen, we are all part of the Air Force family. It is crucial that we pay attention to each other's emotional status, know we can depend on each other, and if need be, take care of one another. The Sources of Airman Resiliency page was designed to help educate all of Team Tyndall about resiliency. Control your problems, don't let them control you. The page provides you with tools that will help you embrace and overcome life's challenges and provide you with the capabilities to bounce back from adversity. Building resiliency is a lifestyle change, and it starts with you.

tabFour Pillars of CAF  
Mental: Approaching life's challenges in a positive way by demonstrating self-control, stamina and good character with choices and actions; seeking help and offering help.

Physical: Performing and excelling in physical activities that require aerobic fitness, endurance, strength, flexibility and body composition derived through exercise, nutrition and training.

Social: Developing and maintaining trusted, valued friendships that are personally fulfilling and foster good communication, including exchange of ideas, views and experiences.

Spiritual: Strengthening a set of beliefs, principles or values that sustain an individual's sense of well-being and purpose.

Spiritual fitness is about having a sense of purpose and meaning in your life. It's essential to an individual's resiliency as esprit de corps is vital to a unit's mission accomplishment.

It includes but not limited to worldviews, religious faith, sense of purpose, sense of connectedness, values, ethics and morals.
tabTarget Resiliency 
Bounce Back is about resiliency. Targeted Resiliency is about YOU.

We realize that in today's Air Force we are doing more mission with less manpower and resources. It is important that we provide on target Mental Health services, giving the squadrons the exact support they need to ensure their personnel's well being, ensuring the success of the mission.

Our staff recognizes that building resiliency with our fellow airmen and their families takes a cross-functional multi-base agency team effort. We will meet this challenge with resiliency-based interventions tailored to meet both the individual and squadron's needs. We believe that resiliency is not a static target but a moving target, one that changes day to day.

Our staff will also offer personalized consultation based resiliency interventions that empower you as a consumer to be in charge of your own resiliency.
