What is the purpose of this program and what can I expect to gain?
“Veteran Wellness: Journey from Coping to Thriving” is a program created to help active duty members separating from the service or for veterans that have already left the service. The program was made by and for veterans and provides each attendee with individualized tools to navigate the loss of connection and mental health challenges associated with separating from military service. This program helps transitioning members and veterans understand the importance of resilience, help-seeking approaches, and how to get the best use of the benefits they have earned.
How long does it take to complete this program?
Participants will begin this program with an online segment to be completed in advance of the one-day, in-person training. The resources that participants receive from this training can be saved and used throughout the veteran’s journey to wellness.
