In July 2022, Shelby County, Tennessee celebrated the 10th anniversary of its veterans treatment court (VTC). In this free webinar sponsored by Averhealth, panelists will discuss the trauma, mental health disorders, and substance use disorders veterans can return home with, leading to issues of unemployment, homelessness, and high rates of suicide. Panelists will describe how the Shelby County VTC got started and the challenges and successes of a decade in operation. Attendees will also hear one graduate’s story of his journey to recovery.
Through this webinar, attendees will:
- Identify the benefits of a VTC for those who have served our nation
- Learn from the perseverance and commitment of the Shelby County VTC
- Learn how to implement action items to start or refine a VTC in their communities
