Today is Veteran's Day, and we all send warm wishes to the men and women who have served and are still serving our country. In honor of their bravery, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and other mental health organizations have banned together to start a grassroots program called Give an Hour. It provides free psychological services for veterans who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or have other psychological needs.
"Not all wounds are physical. There are those hidden injuries that impact the mental health of soldiers, their friends, families and dear ones," stated Carolyn Robinowitz, M.D., APA past president, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Many of our CafeMoms are in the military or their SO's are serving. Check out their photos on Cafe Sheri's awesome post today in Home & Garden. Another anonymous mom asked in the questions section: How are you spending Veteran's Day?
My father was in the Navy, and he served in the Bay of Pigs. Thank you, Dad!
Who would you like to give props to?
