This video was created to educate anyone who works with, lives with, or cares for our military Veterans. PsychArmor asked hundreds of Veterans what they wanted civilians, employers, educators, health care providers, and therapists to know about them. These comments were used to create the topics of this course including 5 Questions You Should Always Ask Veterans, 1 Question You Should Never Ask Veterans, and 15 Facts that promote greater understanding of our Veterans.
This video is being shared in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
PsychArmor is a nonprofit that offers FREE online training courses and resources for Americans so they can effectively engage with and support military service members, Veterans, and their families.

As a result, members of the military and Veteran community often feel misunderstood and reluctant to seek support.
