Details: Mental Health First Aid is a valuable resource that can make a difference in the lives of the more than 22 million veterans, their families, and the communities they live in. Family members and personnel working with military and families are often not aware of how to engage veterans with mental illnesses and addictions. In addition to the impact of military service on the veteran, each has a circle of family (significant other, children, parents, siblings, etc.) and friends who are also impacted by their military service.

Objectives: 1. A discussion of military culture and its relevance to the topic of mental health 2. A discussion of the specific risk factors faced by many service members and their families such as trauma, both mental and physical, stress, separation, etc. 3. Applying the ALGEE action plan in a number of scenarios designed specifically for service members, their families and those that support them 4. A review of common mental health resources for service members, their families and those who support them
