Working with the Military for Mental Health
In Kentucky, the Kentucky Division of Behavioral Health, a GLS grantee, and the National Guard are working together on Operation Immersion with the goal of improving behavioral health services for members of the military and veterans. This project brought behavioral health professionals to the Wendell H. Ford Regional Training Center for a look at military culture that will help them provide more effective services to active members of the military and veterans. In addition to physical fitness training and combat simulations, participants received classroom instruction on subjects including suicide prevention, military culture, and traumatic brain injury. More information on Operation Immersion can be found on the Kentucky National Guard blog Unbridled Service.
