Making Connections sites across the US host community events this Veterans Day to support vets, their familiesNovember 10, 2016
As Veterans Day approaches, we’re highlighting the work of the national Making Connections for Mental Health and Wellbeing Among Men and Boys initiative, which includes veterans among its populations of focus. Military members and veterans don’t just experience war, loss, injuries, and fear during service. Their social connections are disrupted when they are deployed, and again when they are discharged home. They return to communities where most people are not able to relate to their experiences, and they experience trauma-related symptoms at a disproportionate rate.
