Let’s Talk About it: Coaching into Care

April 9 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm CDT

When your loved one is struggling and reluctant, or outright refusing to seek care, it can be frustrating and even make you feel a little helpless. You're not alone. Many service members and veterans are reluctant to seek care, for a variety of reasons, and it can be incredibly difficult on the individual, the loved one supporting them, and on the relationship and family.

At the VSN, we strive to empower and give spouses/partners a voice to advocate for themselves, the needs of their families, and for the veteran or service member in their life. This event serves as a peer support complement to the April 4th, Coaching Into Care seminar with Dr. Sayers. You do not need to attend the seminar but it is recommended. Register HERE. VSN Peer Leader, Cassandra Garcia, will discuss key topics from the seminar, and participants can share tips and support one another to promote access to mental health care.

If you would like support now in supporting a veteran in your life through their mental health care journey call the VA Coaching Into Care program at 888-823-7458 and a licensed psychologist or social worker will give you tips and connect you to resources.

To be eligible for this group you must be the spouse or partner of an active duty service member or post-service veteran, a caregiver, a divorced spouse from a veteran or active duty service member, or a friend of a service member or veteran.

Eligibility varies by session, so please check our Eventbrite page to see other social clubs that may interest you.
