Moral injury rooted in service, mission

There will be a veterans‘ panel discussion, and the agenda will provide ample time for open conversation as to how we can best collaborate and build a strong support framework between and among community providers.

Veteran Scott Germain will lead the veterans panel on the challenges we face and what helps.

Mary Heck, a readjustment counselor for Readjustment Counseling Services, and Tony Riello of the VA will give presentations on moral injury.

Beverly Prestwood-Taylor of The Brookfield Institute will talk about resilience, along with Jennifer Bauditz. Jennifer is a military spouse of 15 years with experience as a program manager for military family support and holds a Continued Advanced Graduate degree in resilience. She will be teaching a course on "Resilience, Service Members, Veterans and Families" at Assumption College in the spring of 2019.

We'll also have a conversation about building resilience and a group conversation about collaboration.

The $10 fee covers the cost of lunch and materials.
