Live Ideas: Noon-Time Talk Series: Marjorie Morrison Proactive Military Mental Health
Marjorie Morrison discusses proactive military mental health with Jason Hansman, Joe Mauricio and Mateo Romero. For the first time in American history, 90% of wounded service members survive their injuries. A greater percentage of men and women are now coming home with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and severe Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). A new approach to mental health needs to be adopted in the military to adequately address these unique needs. The shift to move services from reactive to proactive and mandate education on alternative techniques such as mindfulness is desperately needed. In this panel, Morrison, Mauricio and Romero will discuss where we are, where we were and where we need to be.
