Moral Injury and the Role of Community in the Veteran's Homecoming

  • 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
  • Power Center

When war's invisible wounds to the mind, heart and soul are defined as a mental condition called post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the effect is to scapegoat veterans and marginalize them from their community. Family, friends, and members of their church often feel uncertain of their role because they are not mental health professionals.

This one-day conference aims to address this by bringing together mental health professionals, veterans, civilians, and students to highlight the community's essential role in the homecoming of the veteran.
