Licensed Armed Forces MHFA Courses
Few are those who can fully appreciate what members of the Armed Forces go through. Especially forward-deployed troops who regularly experience unimaginable horrors as part of their daily routine.
The fact is that when many servicemen and women return home they bring mental health issues with them, including depression and PTSD. These and other issues can have long-term negative effects on their quality of life, and the quality of life of their loved ones if not treated.
