The first thing that may come to mind when we think about veterans and military members is PTSD; However, PTSD is just one of the many mental health issues that generate in this population. This workshop will focus on Eating Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Depression/Anxiety, and Relationships/Divorce in the military. This workshop will allow us to explore topics beyond PTSD among our military members and veterans in more detail and provide insight on how to become more aware of the battle our service men and women face and how the being trained to not show weakness often leads to future, untreated and heightened problems.
