From Heidi at WDVA:


The Veterans Training Support Center provides continuing educational opportunities and professional development to those who provide direct service to veterans and their family members. The aim is to raise awareness and understanding on issues specific to veterans such as invisible wounds like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, and to encourage agency and institution staff to establish promising best practices that will empower this population in their reintegration and pursuit of personal, academic, and meaningful career goals.  Check out their upcoming training opportunities:
