Free Online Training to Assist With Serving Veterans
PCPA is writing on behalf of Pennsylvania’s military service members and their families with a very special request. Over the next 24 months, waves of service members will return from deployment to be reunited with loved ones. But the joy can be short lived once the realities of transition into everyday life begin to sink in.
Many service members return from deployment to communities where they do not have access to military base programs and services. These individuals are seeking help from local behavioral health providers, but often do not return for care if the provider does not have an understanding of military life and the impact of deployment.
The Pennsylvania Departments of Public Welfare, Military and Veterans Affairs, Drug and Alcohol Programs, Health, PCPA, and the National Association of Social Workers has partnered with Army OneSource to provide four free, nationally-accredited continuing education courses on the impact of combat stress and deployment on children and families, military culture, and PTSD. Access the courses at http://restofthewayhome.com/.
Pennsylvania’s service members and their families have made countless sacrifices over numerous deployments including Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Please join PCPA in thanking them for that service by taking these courses and learning more about how to support them in returning to our communities.
