Spotlight on services for vets

The Stamford/Greenwich National Alliance on Mental Illness is shining the spotlight tonight on veterans who are coming home from combat with injuries that are not always visible.

The goal of the event is to help veterans recover with guidance from Marine veteran Bob Correll who will speak tonight, April 11, about services available to veterans and their families to help educate and support those struggling with PTSD and other mental health issues. Complementing the work of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), these initiatives include a consumer council and peer-led support groups.

A past president of National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Connecticut, Mr. Correll will be accompanied by two veterans involved in the Errera Center at the West Haven VA. Ample time for questions and answers will follow the presentation.

The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. tonight, April 11, in Conference Room B at the Tully Health Center, 32 Strawberry Hill Court, Stamford.

Hosted by the Stamford/Greenwich affiliate of NAMI, the program is open to the public and free of charge.
