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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or filling out a Program Interest Form.
