“Veterans in Transition”

Gil D’Amore, NAMI Pasco’s Veteran Advocate, represented his Pasco affiliate of the grassroots advocacy and education organization on June 6 & 7 at St. Leo University’s 2014 Military & Veteran Social Work Conference.

Held at the main campus, the conference theme, “Veterans in Transition,” was designed to bring attention to the increasing number of troops returning home from the Middle East requiring help for injuries and psychological trauma. The conference is the only one in the nation for social work practitioners and educators dedicated solely to the field of military social work. And of course our Gil was there!what-is-ptsd
