Combat Veterans and Higher Education: Helping Student Veterans with PTSD and TBI Achieve Academic Success
Date of Meeting: October 7, 2020

Today’s combat veterans are not only readjusting to life in a civilian world but many are also choosing to return to school.  Sometimes, these Veterans are also managing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), which may bring about additional difficulties when attending school. This free two-hour seminar provides participants with information about PTSD, TBI, and how to help our student Veterans succeed in facilities of higher education.

To schedule this training for your organization, please call 701-239-3700 ext 4310 or 701-451-4626.
