    GI Go Fund Veterans Gala

    GI Go Fund hosts its annual Veterans Gala on December 9, 6-9pm, to celebrate the military community and the partners who have helped the organization succeed in 2019.

    Their annual Gala brings veterans, corporate leaders, and community partners together to meet and develop business relationships that will foster economic opportunities for former military personnel. In addition, they will honor several corporate and community leaders who have made a difference in the lives of military veterans.

    This year, they will honor all the partners who helped make the Navy SEAL Hudson River Swim this past August the success that it was, raising over $200,000 to end veteran homelessness!

    Veterans Mental Health First Aid

    The Veterans Mental Health Coalition of NYC offers Veterans Mental Health First Aid on December 13, 9am-5pm. 

    A RAND Corp study indicates that more than half of service members returning to civilian life in New York State return with psychological injuries. Only one-third ever seek treatment.
     
    Veterans often forsake their emotional health because other support services are at the top of their priority lists - housing, employment, legal services, and other non-mental health services. That means a majority of veterans in New York City who are suffering from behavioral health disorders are not getting the supports they need to recover. 
         
    Suicide is preventable if we can connect returning service members and veterans with appropriate care early-on.  
     
    And you don't have to be a clinician to make a difference.
    Join other non-mental health providers who recognize the important role they play as gatekeepers to mental health support for service members, veterans and their families and register HERE.
