Lansing National Association on Mental Illness starts new veterans program

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – The Lansing chapter of the National Association on Mental Illness is starting a new project to help those who care for veterans with mental health issues.

It’s a free six-session educational program for family, friends and care takers of afflicted veterans.

They will be taught by other people who have been in that situation and will learn crisis management skills, how to communicate effectively, get access to government services, understand current and developing treatment, and how to take care of themselves.

Services start Monday, October 10th at 6:00 p.m. at the McLaren Hospital Lansing Campus. Those interested in registering can call 517-484-3404, email, or filling out a Program Interest Form.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
