The Indiana Veterans Behavioral Health Network (IVBHN) will be hosting a Military Family Night at various locations throughout Indiana in February and March. Robbie Schmidt, VA TBI Polytrauma Social Worker and Case Manager, will offer a free presentation on the topic of “TBI Awareness and Symptoms”.
The presentation is part of a series of family education nights hosted by IVBHN aimed at providing resources and relevant information for military families.
Through an innovative public/private partnership, Affiliated Service Providers of Indiana, Inc. (ASPIN) coordinates the efforts of the IVBHN network with the Indiana Rural Health Association, Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction, Roudebush Veterans Administration Medical Center, Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University, Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Labor - Veterans’ Employment and Training Services and five community mental health providers: Bowen Center, Four County Counseling Center, Centerstone East, Hamilton Center, Inc., and Wabash Valley Alliance.
The state of Indiana is home to over 500,000 veterans and ranks fourth in the nation for the number of National Guard soldiers deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Indiana’s Veterans Integrated Service Network 11(VISN 11) ranks seventh among all VISNs in suicide completions. The behavioral health needs of the veteran population continue to be the focus of IVBHN, which was funded in 2009 through a Health Resource and Services Administration Rural Network Development Grant.
