"The psychosocial needs of our service members and their families are serious, complex, and growing. Many civilian service providers want desperately to help but often lack the context and direction needed. These courses help bridge that gap. These courses are valuable tools in helping military communities and those who serve them." Brian W. Flynn, Ed.D. (RADM, USPHS, Ret)
