Montachusett Suicide Prevention Task Force Launches Military Family Support Group

January 12, 2017

Gardner, MA – The newly formed Military Family Support Group offers a safe place for family members of both active and former military members to share their experiences, struggles and hope in overcoming the invisible wounds of war that affect the entire family unit.

Veterans and their loved ones can su¬ffer from one or many of the following: survivor’s guilt, separation anxiety, emotional numbing, adrenaline seeking, depression, anxiety, insomnia, alcohol and substance abuse, PTSD and traumatic brain injury.

The group coaches and supports military family members to find healing, balance, and strategies for positive re-integration for military members with their family and society. We also connect families with local resources.

The group will meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 10 am and again at 3 pm in the Dining Room B at Heywood Hospital.

For more information, please contact Crystal Bean at (978) 320-9804.
