We are excited to announce the launch of NAMI Homefront Mental Health Resources for Military Service Members, Veterans and Their Families, a free online suite of resources designed to increase understanding, communication, wellness and advocacy skills.
When NAMI Homefront was launched in 2014, the program was intended to address the unique needs of families, caregivers and friends of military service members and veterans experiencing PTSD, traumatic brain injury and other mental health conditions.
With this new resource center, we have expanded the reach of NAMI Homefront to include military service members and veterans as well. Users can access the information and support 24/7, both in the U.S. and when stationed overseas.
Accessible through computers or mobile devices, the resource center includes information about:
- Mental health conditions
- Treatment options
- Approaches to increase overall wellness
- Tips for self-care and managing stress
- Communication strategies
- Transitioning from military to civilian life
- Links to helpful organizations and crisis services
- And more!
We’re honored to offer these resources to our military and veteran communities, especially as we recognize Veterans Day Thursday, Nov. 11, and pay respect to all those who have served. If you or someone you know could benefit from these resources, visit homefrontresources.nami.org to sign up today.
