The Norwegian Armed Forces have control routines for everything. In the field manual, these are named in association to different cities around the world. For example, vehicle maintenance is named after the motor city Detroit. Many soldiers´ mental health suffer after international operations. Despite this fact, there were no procedures for addressing this issue. Our goal was to put the soldiers´ mental health on the agenda by introducing a new control routine. We named it New Delhi, a city associated with mindfulness. We sent the proposal to everyone in a higher position in the Army. The new control routine was heavily debated, but no one wanted to give an official statement.
However, year later, a treatment program for veterans´ mental health has been developed.
