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
- 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?

Defense, Military Service Departments, Department of Veterans Affairs,
Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health
