We will soon be starting a weekly family support group for parents, spouses, etc.


This Winter we will begin a monthly seminar which will include topics such as:

“Understanding the Psychological Impact of War-Zone Exposure and Coming Home” which explores military sexual trauma, PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury and moral injury and relation to suicide prevention.

“Addressing Moral Injury to Prevent Military Suicide” focuses on unspoken spiritual impact of performing duties that may be in conflict with deeply held beliefs.  Presentation includes specific veteran warning signs and strategies to assist.

“Understanding the Impact of Service on Military Families” explores dynamics of cycles of deployment on family members, including children and ways to foster resilience and re-connection.

These seminars will be open to the public.
