From the War Zone to the Home Front:
Supporting the Mental Health of Veterans and Families
In collaboration with the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs National Center for PTSD, the Psychiatry Academy produced two separate online series with a combined total of 23 one-hour sessions. Each session debuted on http://www.mghcme.org with a live broadcast and was immediately made available for participation on-demand.
Targeted to community-based primary care and mental health providers, including physicians, psychologists, nurses, and clinical social workers, these series provide a comprehensive look at suicide risk assessment in veterans, diagnosis and treatment of co-morbid PTSD and TBI, substance abuse, sleep problems, the culture of returned veterans, new DSM-5 criteria on PTSD, complicated grief in veterans and military families, and other challenges facing returning veterans and families today.VIEW MORE INFO +
