About the Directorate of Prevention, Resilience and Readiness

In June 2023, the U.S. Army announced the realignment and merger of the Army Resilience Directorate from G-1, Personnel, to the Soldier and Family Readiness Directorate, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-9. This move formalized a new prevention governance structure, enabling a community approach to prevention that lowers the risk of harmful behaviors.

The consolidated directorate was renamed the Directorate of Prevention, Resilience and Readiness on July 1, 2023, and is led by Ms. Dee Geise, former director of SFRD.

RESILIENCE is the ability to persevere, adapt, & grow in dynamic or stressful environments.

Resilience encompasses internal motivation, persistence, and how Soldiers revitalize, recover and/or adapt in order to respond constructively to challenges in their daily lives. Training and education empower leaders and Soldiers to demonstrate resilience. When individuals gain experience in applying these skills, it enables cohesive team building and drives readiness.
