PSU and community partners to host workshop supporting returning veterans

The Graduate School of Education is hosting a workshop on mental health for community members who work with returning military veterans. Sponsored by PSU, Tri West Healthcare Alliance, and the Department of Veterans Affairs, it provides information on understanding the challenges facing soldiers and their families when reintegrating into civilian life. The overarching goal is to equip providers and other professionals working with veterans in educational and community settings with information needed to better identify and treat combat-related mental health problems. This will enhance work with soldiers, their families, and members of the systems they encounter.

The event is  Friday, June 4, from 8am-4:30pm in Smith Memorial Student Union. A $75 fee includes lunch and breaks. For registration or information contact the school of extended studies at 503-725-4832 or register online. For event information, contact Kathy Lovrien, 503-725-8165.
