The Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) will host an online event, “Virtual Mental Health Fair: Coping with Holiday Stress,” on Facebook, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (EST)
The event builds on the first virtual mental health fair DCoE hosted in June that brought together more than 50 mental health-related organizations. The December event brings attention to the stress that service members, veterans and their families coping with mental health concerns may experience during the holiday season. Government and non-profit organizations dedicated to mental health care for service members, veterans and military families will showcase their resources and answer questions in a live format.
Visitors will move between photo booths that represent participating organizations to view and access resources, and have the opportunity to join live question and answer chats at the booths during pre-appointed hours.
