SPEND FOUR DAYS IMMERSED IN THE MILITARY CULTURE AND GAIN INSIGHT INTO TREATING THE IMPACTS ON SOLDIERS’ BEHAVIORAL HEALTH
Stigma continues to be a barrier to soldiers seeking assistance for mental health or substance abuse issues. Worries about career impact and a belief that professionals outside the military do not understand the experience of being a soldier keep soldiers from accessing critical behavioral health care. To remove barriers and ease soldier apprehension to accessing treatment, the Kentucky Division of Behavioral Health and Kentucky National Guard have teamed up to present a comprehensive 4-day training in military culture and issues unique to soldiers and their families who have served in the combat theater and experienced long deployments. This training will immerse attendees in aspects of military culture and the deployment experience. Attendees will spend the night in barracks, go through a modified early morning Physical Training (“PT”), chores and inspection, experience a Field Leadership Reaction Course as well as meet and network with military personnel and resources.
