NASW-NYS in the News: Veterans Mental Health Training Initiative holds forum

Thank you to everyone who came out to “A Closer Look at Moral Injury: Existential Challenges faced by Returning Veterans” on Wednesday, September 20 at Rome Capitol Cinemas. This event was hosted by the Veterans Mental Training Initiative and the Mohawk Valley Division of the National Association of Social Workers.

A Closer Look at Moral Injury provided an overview of military culture and the challenges of transitioning into civilian life, with a particular focus on the concept of moral injury and the factors that can lead to a moral wound and its lasting implications for one’s spirituality, identity, and ethics. This event also featured a screening of the award-winning documentary,  ALMOST SUNRISE (2016) and a discussion panel featuring veterans and military service members.
