Sharing Stories & Changing Military Attitudes About Mental Health Military culture instills an ethic of "toughing it out," yet the psychological wounds related to combat, posttraumatic stress and the transition back to civilian life can put veterans and active-duty personnel at greater risk for family problems, substance abuse, homelessness and even suicide. Hear the compelling story of Major (Ret.) Joshua Mantz, who was severely wounded by an enemy sniper in 2007 and has since dedicated his life to helping combat veterans and families of all generations recover from the emotional consequences of combat. Learn about Next Mission, a series of interactive online college-level courses taught by military veterans and behavioral health experts that helps active-duty service members and veterans around the world transition to civilian jobs and family life while earning college credits or military promotion points. NAMI's initiatives for the military and veterans will also be presented, as will the six-session NAMI Homefront education program, which is taught by and for military and veteran families. Joshua Mantz, Major (Ret.), HR Business Partner, Tesla Motors, Fremont, Calif. Kim Norman, M.D., Distinguished Professor of Adolescent and Young Adult Health, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco Suzanne Robinson, M.S.W., Senior Education Program Manager, NAMI, Arlington, Va.
