#MacroSW: Military Family Mental Health
By Rachel L. West
tonight’s #MacroSW Twitter chat will be about military family health.
Military service members, veterans, and their families are extremely resilient , but the stress of war, multiple deployments, and frequent moves can impact their emotional, physical, and overall well-being. During the month of May, #MacroSW is teaming up with USC School of Social Work to help raise awareness by inviting our community to participate in the Military Family Mental Health campaign. The goal behind this campaign is to build public recognition about the importance of mental health to overall health and wellness, particularly within the military community.
You can read more about the chat topic here at Social Work Helper. The chat starts at 9:00 PM EST.
#MacroSW chats is a collaboration between the Association for Community Organization and Social Administration (ACOSA), Social Work Helper, USC School of Social Work, Karen Zgoda, UB School of Social Work, Macro Social Work Student Network (MSWSN), and the Network for Social Work Management (NSWM). Chats are held twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. Topics focus on various macro social work issues.
