Mental Health and TBI Care Challenge

Mental Health CPR

I am not a medical professional but have saved a life with CPR. I propose a CPR type training helps people create a bridge between those affected with PTSD/TBI and Medical providers. Something simple like: (RULE)- R (recognize) U (understand) L (listen) E (encourage). It would empower and assist.

Mental Health and TBI Care Challenge

TBI/PTSD Education for Caregivers, Families & Friends-Care Continuum Involvement

Caregivers know little about TBI. They don't understand why their loved ones act & communicate they way they do & often respond negatively; impacting their relationship. They are unfamiliar with their loved one's treatments. They have lost support from family & friends because of behavioral issues.

Mental Health and TBI Care Challenge

Enhanced training in Combat Operational Stress leadership

Many service members who have PTSD symptoms do not seek mental health care. Certain leader behaviors and attitudes are associated with subordinates' mental health and willingness to seek care. Enhanced training for leaders in those behaviors and attitudes can increase service members' help-seeking.
