Community Conversations - Veterans & Mental Health
Join us via Zoom on Thursday, May 6th for a discussion about Veterans & Mental Health!
Did you know that May is Mental Health Awareness Month? Did you know that every day, 20 Veterans die by suicide? There are a number of troubling statistics which show that not enough is being done and that many of our Veterans are not receiving the care and support that they deserve to address their needs. We wanted to take this opportunity to bring awareness to and discuss the mental health challenges faced by our Veterans, such as PTSD, Moral Injury, Military Identity, and more. We've pulled together a panel of experts to share their experiences, their knowledge and resources. Hear what they have to say - and stick around for Q&A at the end of the discussion.
Thursday, May 6, 2021 ~ 9:00 - 11:00 AM, CT
Panel of Experts:
Gina Bartoszewicz, Clinical Coordinator for the Veteran Outreach and Recovery Program with the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs
Dr. Bert Berger, Head of the Mental Health Division at the Milwaukee VA Medical Center
Dr. Gregory Burek, Psychiatrist, Aurora Veterans Mental Health & U.S. Marine Corps Veteran
Erich A. Roush, Psy.D. Veteran Track Aurora Psychiatric Hospital & Current Officer in the U.S. Army Reserves
Moderated by Daniel Buttery, President & CEO - War Memorial Center & U.S. Army Veteran
The Community Conversations series is an annual free event open to the public, our Veterans, active military, and our partners - to educate on and discuss issues relevant to our mission.
