PTSD Support Group for Veterans and Their Family Members

Southeastern Minnesota Center for Independent Living (SEMCIL) Veteran Services Program is now offering a support group for Veterans that have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or those who have signs and symptoms of PTSD, and their family members.  Maybe you need to talk or just be in the company of your extended Veteran family.  The support group will be a place for Veterans to share, heal and talk about their experiences in dealing with PTSD. We will be there for each other.

We are our brothers and sisters keepers because the oath we took to never leave a fallen comrade has no expiration date. For many of us, combat veterans, there are daily reminders of deaths of brothers and sisters.

The group will be facilitated by Jennifer Shumaker, Olmsted County Veteran Services Officer:
