Grief & Loss Webinar -10 am
How does one handle the loss of something important to them?
Grief takes many forms. Grief can represent the deep sorrow and ache a person feels after the loss of something or someone important to them. Unfortunately, members of our armed forces know all too well the losses they experience throughout their time in the service as well as the time following their separation from the military. Whether you’re a Veteran, member of the armed forces, or a loved one of either of those, join us for this webinar where we discuss the losses our military members experience, how those are expressed, and how they cope and adapt to that change. You’ll walk away with tools and resources to help you adapt to your grief or acknowledge the grief in others.
I’m a Midwest transplant to the southwest. I enjoy spending time with my husband, two kids, and two dogs, especially our nightly evening walks. I’m a big Chicago Cubs fan, enjoy playing fantasy football, and would rather spend time in the mountains than on the beach. I love learning things.
My favorite thing about working for NCHP is knowing that the smallest things that I do every day are having the biggest impact on our Veterans and their families. I like supporting Veterans because I know how much it’s needed. I’ve seen firsthand the devastation of Veteran suicide and how lack of awareness and education contributes to that. I like knowing I have the ability and resources to educate others in the hopes that one day we can end suicide.
