Memorial Day: Recognizing and Supporting our Nation’s Veterans

In 2014, the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program and the suicidepreventionVeterans Administration’s National Center for PTSD, joined forces to create their third online lecture series on treating veterans titled, “From the War Zone to the Home Front.”

This series is now available online. Moreover, CME/CE/CEU credits are available for physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and licensed mental health counselors. The program includes nine hour-long lectures, three of which are clinical case presentations.

Each lecture includes a nationally recognized expert addressing a topic relevant to caring for veterans and their families of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Topics include:

* Mental health mobile apps and other online tools;

* Health of student veterans;

* Co-occurring traumatic brain injury (TBI) or substance abuse;

* Complementary and alternative treatments for PTSD;

* Female veterans; and

* Family care.

Each lecture can be viewed independently. For more information, visit:
