Veteran and Military Mental Health: New Approaches

Behavioral health challenges are nothing new to service members and their families. Veterans and active-duty military personnel are facing soaring rates of behavioral health challenges since COVID-19 began.

Too often the VA hospitals, base providers and other clinicians who care for this population are strapped for resources and appropriate clinical support. Meanwhile, the stigma around mental health continues to pose a unique challenge—leading many into crisis situations that could have been avoided with proper preventative care.

This panel brings together thought leaders who will share the challenges and opportunities when it comes to leveraging innovative approaches to care and emerging technologies to care for the overall wellness of our active duty and veteran populations.
