A program title, "Operation Homecoming: Boot Camp for Civilian Health Care Professions," will be held 8:30 a.m. to noon, July 11 in Suite 802, Harborview Office Tower.
The program's goal is to educate clinical and behavioral health professionals to provide better care to military veterans and their families who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury. Funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, the mission of this project is to train 10,000 clinical professionals across the country to better serve the often unique needs of military personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Although eligible for care through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), veterans and their families living in rural area may find it difficult to regularly visit a VA facility. This program is designed to provide clinical professionals across the country, particularly in rural areas, with the tools they need to better treat veterans and their family members.
