CareForTheTroops, Inc is a 501c3 Non-Profit formed to develop a network of civilian faith communities, civic organizations, and networks of therapists all trained and able to work with the military members, veterans, and their families as they adjust to the changes experienced during and after returning from deployments and combat.
A key goal of this initiative is to increase the number of EMDR trained clinicians in the state of Georgia so that more are available to recognize and treat trauma experienced by the returning veterans and their families.
- Please enroll in their database so that referrals can be made to you (they are NOT asking for free services)
- Please pass this along to other EMDR trained people you know and to congregation leaders who you know
Peter McCall, Executive Director of CareForTheTroops, Inc. has the following message:
“Everyone, No Matter Who You Are
- Help us get the word out about this resource. Consider forwarding this email on to your friends, neighbors, and other networks to which you belong
- Discuss this initiative with your Congregation Leader… if you are part of a congregation
- If you are not part of a congregation…you may still know of one or more congregation leaders and bring this to their attention
- Encourage them to start a military ministry in their congregation if they do not already have one
- Recommend they visit the CareForTheTroops web site, and read about how Congregations can participate
If you are a therapist consider enrolling in the CareForTheTroops database so that Military Veterans and their family members can find you and your services. Also consider attending training about the Military Culture and about EMDR or another trauma treatment technique recommended by the VA. Information about doing this is on the web site.
If you are a civic leader, school counselor, family doctor, employer, or work with a social service organization that is now or may in the future have contact with veterans and their families, consider attending training on the Military Culture and review the CareForTheTroops web site.
Every one of us has the ability to help those who have sacrificed on behalf of our society. Every action above represents an opportunity for each of us to contribute to helping a military family member who needs help to get the help they deserve.”
