Faithful readers, thank you, as always, for taking the time to learn and share more about Veteran Mental Health. A key component of the mental health and wellness of former service members is the support that we get from our families; I know that I would not be where I am today if it weren’t for my wife, and I tell her as often as I remember to…which isn’t nearly often enough.
I’m working on a new project to support those often silent and unseen heroes, the caregiver for the wounded, injured, or ill service member. We had the honor of being able to host a very real and important communication from a military caregiver, Amy Taft. The caregivers of the veterans I work with require support and encouragement, and I hope to be able to develop some resources to do so.
I’d appreciate it if you would take a few short minutes, if you are a caregiver or know of one, to fill out this survey. If you’re not a caregiver, share it with some that you know. Gathering the collective wisdom of these amazing individuals will further support their efforts at supporting those who have served.
