A Virtual "Summit" for Military & Veteran Caregivers (and those who want to help them) - focused on mental health - the first of its kind!
The Caregiver Mental Health Summit is a meeting of the minds on both sides of the aisle; both military and veteran caregivers as well as the professionals in the mental health field assisting them. The Summit will consist of two separate days packed with information and real-world resources which will be made available to these men and women who help our country by serving those who served.
The event is completely online, so you can attend from the comfort of your home! Each day is limited to only 1000 participants (which is the most the hosting service can handle). However, anyone who is not able to attend the live event will have access to the free, recorded version.
If you have a subject that you would like addressed during the summit, please tweet your question with the hashtag #CaregiverSummit before or during the event.
