PSU Offers Services to War Veterans

October 2nd, 2009 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-
The Plymouth State University Counseling and Human Relations Center will be offering a War Veterans Group to provide PSU students (and possibly some non-students) who are U.S. military veterans of war an opportunity to address issues of coping, stress management, and the aftereffects of their combat and/or non-combat war experiences with other veterans in a safe, confidential, and supportive environment.

The goals of the group include the increased ability to cope effectively with the stress resulting from military/war experience and from readjustment to civilian life; development/strengthening of healthy stress management tools; and mutual support in an environment of peers who have shared war experiences. Group facilitators will be Robert Hlasny, Ph.D., and Michael Fischler, Ed.D.

The meeting day and time will be determined after considering members’ scheduling needs. If you know students who are war veterans, would you please encourage them to call the Counseling and Human Relations Center at 535-2461 to schedule an intake assessment, which is required for participation and will determine suitability for the group. Please be aware that space constraints may limit the size of the group.

For more information about this release, contact Bruce Lyndes, PSU Media Relations Mgr., (603) 535-2775 or blyndes@plymouth.edu
