Many people in our community have a parent or other family member who may be a veteran, who is presently deployed overseas, or who has recently returned home from active duty in the military. Each situation can have a tremendous impact on all members of the family. Next month, there will be an informative, interactive and completely free event that addresses the needs of this special population of our community.

On Saturday, June 15, the Santa Clarita Veterans Services Collaborative is hosting Pathways to Empowerment, a mental health day that will provide breakout sessions dealing with such topics as PTSD ‘s impact on the family, what to expect when your vet returns home, stress reducing strategies for all, and local resources and referrals.

Presenters include Retired Colonel, Carl Castro, PhD., 33-year Army vet, Chairman, NATO – Committee on Transition from Military to Civilian Life who serves as the Director of UCS’s Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans and Military Families and Master Sergeant Charlotte Jennings, a certified suicide prevention counselor and consultant to families of deployed soldiers. Instructors from the Henry Mayo Newhall Fitness Center will be leading classes in Mindfulness and Yoga, tools that may help in dealing with the stress that military families often experience.

Event details:
What: Santa Clarita Veteran & Family Mental Health Day 2019 Pathways to Empowerment
When: 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Where: The Centre (at the top of SCV Sports Complex)
