Mental Health Special: Care of American Veterans, Depression, PTSD, Suicide

The very nature of a complex healthcare system makes workers vulnerable to stress, trauma, depression, and, at times, mental health issues. Healthcare providers serve patients and families who are experiencing difficulty realities—especially during a pandemic. In view of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic sweeping across the globe, we offer this 15 contact hour course bundle at a special price of $29.

The course begins with a discussion of mental health issues common to Veterans and their families, including post traumatic stress disorder, suicide risk, depression, grief, substance abuse, and intimate partner violence.

The next section offers a thorough explanation of depression, focusing on how it differs for men and women. We continue with an overview of PTSD, which describes symptoms, diagnostic criteria, and treatment options. We conclude with an in-depth coverage of suicide in America, which covers risk factors, screening and assessment, lethal means, and the importance of community support.
