Let’s Talk About Milfamily Mental Health Advocacy #MacroSW 5/8/14

MFMHTweetChat

Military service members, veterans, and their families are extremely resilient , but the stress of war, multiple deployments, and frequent moves can impact their emotional, physical, and overall well-being. During the month of May, #MacroSW is teaming up with USC School of Social Work to help raise awareness by inviting our community to participate in the Military Family Mental Health campaign. The goal behind this campaign is to build public recognition about the importance of mental health to overall health and wellness, particularly within the military community.

Join us for the next #MacroSW Chat this Thursday 5/8 6pm PT/ 9pm ET to discuss Military Family Mental Health Advocacy!

  • How are milfamily organizations taking the lead on Mental Health advocacy?
  • What can civilian organizations and advocacy groups learn from the military family groups?
  • What do social workers who work with the military community need to know to provide the best care?
  • Raise your voice to raise awareness through social media!

    • Stay tuned to the conversation around Military Family Mental Health using #MilfamMH!
    • Take 30 seconds to change your profile picture or cover photo to one of these images during the month of May to show your support for this important cause!
