Fighting for Mental Health Services for Those Who Serve
When most people think of those who serve in our Military — active duty personnel and veterans — terms such as Honor, Strength, and Courage come to mind. What happens when a servicemember needs help for trauma-related issues, addiction, or other mental health concerns? Stigma, lack of access to effective mental health services, and fear of consequences all contribute to significantly low rates for seeking help.
Retired and active duty service members need accessible and effective mental health services. Their lives may depend upon it.
Join recognized leaders who work to support active duty military and veterans and who have lived experience to share about the consequences and unintended consequences of military service on mental health equity; risk and resilience factors, and resources for support.
