Mental Health Care for Family Members of Post 9/11 Veterans: Practical Approaches to Addressing the Impact of Invisible Wounds of War on Families

This  course provides an intergenerational perspective on understanding the impact of the invisible wounds of war on family members of Post 9/11 Veterans.

These signature wounds — post traumatic stress, mild traumatic brain injury, and comorbid substance use disorders — affect three generations: parents of veterans, their romantic partners, siblings, and dependent children. This course offers practical guidance on how to better understand and support family members facing these challenges.

Presented by the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program, and generously supported by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation and Major League Baseball, this FREE, online 4-week course offers:

  • 11.50 CME/CE credits
  • 12 role-play videos to illustrate teaching points
  • Interaction with the course director and course faculty via a discussion board
  • Course content that is mobile-friendly and on-demand, so you can participate whenever your schedule allows
