This will be a national day of service, honored by the VFW and GAH, to promote dialogue on mental health, emotional suffering, and access to care, while striving to Change the Direction of mental health in America in general, and for the veteran community in particular.
VFW Posts and their Auxiliaries across the country will participate in this day of service by hosting activities in their local community and also help create awareness of the Five Signs of emotional suffering.
It will include a screening of the documentary, “Into The Light,” as well as Q&A with a mental health professional. A VFW Service Officer will be available to assist veterans with benefit questions.
This event is for everyone - veterans, family members, as well as the public.
