Active and retired members of the armed forces do not necessarily have to go through the VA to get assistance for PTSD and other related issues.
NAMI Homefront is a free, 6-session program for the family, friends and significant others of military Service Members and Veterans. The class helps families understand what the Service Member/Veteran is experiencing related to trauma, combat stress, civilian life transition, PTSD and other mental health conditions.
The program is designed to help family members understand and support their Service Member/Veteran while maintaining their own well-being. NAMI Homefront have personal experience with the mental health conditions impacting their Service Member/Veteran. The class is free but you are expected to attend all six sessions. You must have access to a laptop, PC or tablet with stable internet connection to participate. To hear audio, you will have to call in via telephone. We recommend you use a headset or headphones. An application process is required to ensure this program is a good fit. Space is limited.
