The 2015 Warrior-Family Symposium (WFS), cosponsored by the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) and Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), will delve into a more focused look at government and nongovernment organizations aligning to take action to improve the overall mental wellness of the nation's servicemembers and veterans and their families - specifically looking at our individual and collective responsibilities and commitments to taking care of our own, as citizens and as the nation at-large.
This year's program panel discussions will proactively engage and ignite an interactive, in-depth dialogue on the actual progress made to date and offer real solutions and opportunities for engagement that will carry beyond the day's event so attendees can make meaningful contributions for positively impacting the mental well-being of our warriors and their family members and those caring for them.
The symposium will focus throughout the day on two basic questions surrounding the issue of warrior-family mental wellness:
- How has the government moved the needle forward in improving the well-being and care of the nation's servicemembers and veterans and their families and caregivers?
- How and what do we collectively, as a nation, need to do to further deliver on quality mental health care for warrior-family needs within the next five years?
Who Should Attend: administration, congressional, Department of Defense, Military Service Departments, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Labor, and other federal, state, or local agency leaders and staffs, military operational leaders, nongovernmental leaders and staff members, clinicians (including but not limited to psychologists, physicians, nurses, social workers, counselors), researchers, industry, academia, community leaders, caregivers, servicemembers and veterans and their families, and other interested organizations and individuals.
