Health providers train with National Guard

Posted 5/21/12

CRANSTON – More than 55 behavior-health providers participated in “Operation Immersion,” a two-day training event held on May 10-11 in partnership with the Rhode Island National Guard.

Participants attended classes on issues directly related to behavioral health, such as substance-use disorders and the military, military culture, and post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain-injury issues unique to soldiers.

At the training, servicemen and servicewomen shared their stories about deployment, and military family members talked about their experiences before, during and after the deployment of loved ones.

“Operation Immersion is an outstanding opportunity for behavioral health care providers and recovery coaches from across Rhode Island to get an in-depth view of the challenges faced by our servicemen and women,” said Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee. •
