For Serving Personnel
OPSMART stands for “Optimising Performance Throught Stress Management and Resilence Training” and has been created to provide training to all ranks to enable them to better manage their own mental health and resilience as well as to support others.
The Army considers the wellbeing of all Service Personnel to be a priority and is fully committed to improving the mental fitness and resilience of all personnel. To fulfil this commitment the Army has developed its own evidence-based mental fitness programme called OPSMART.
OPSMART delivery for all units currently focuses on three key areas:
1. Mental Resilience Training (MRT);
2. Army Mental Health Awareness Training (AMHAT);
3. Conversation and Listening Life Skills (CALLS).
OPSMART is a journey to progressively develop and sustain resilience that starts on entry into Service, continues throughout their career and transition out of Service. It is applicable to all Regular and Reserve personnel.
Breaking News: Regular and Reserve soldiers can now benefit from having a popular mental health toolkit at their fingertips, thanks to a new partnership between the British Army and Headspace.
What is Headspace?
Headspace is more than a meditation app, it’s a personal guide to mindfulness, sleep, focus, movement and more. From waking up to exercising, eating to sleeping, Headspace has more than 1,000 hours of exercises to help stressed users spend their whole day mindfully – not just when sitting to meditate.
