A day-long forum to help veterans with post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury took place at MCC.
The event titled: Serve. Honor. Support. Symposium is sponsored by CDS Monarch of Webster.
Experts say in many cases, the toughest battle a service member fights is the one when they return home.
"The latest thinking is we have to get rid of the traditional checklist kind of models of evaluating, assessing and supporting these challenges. The men and women in many cases have developed combat stress reactions that have kept them alive in the battlefield, they can't simply turn them off when they come home. what we're learning is in many cases they're adaptive therapies to help them utilize those new skills so that they can perform well in the civilian work place," said Robert Mixon, executive vice president of CDS Monarch.
