On this special Veterans Day edition of Mental Health Monday, Deaconess Heidi Goehmann, LCSW, and Chaplain Mike Moreno, CDR, OIC, NR RELSUP HQMC, Commander in the Chaplain Corps of the United States Navy and now a Pastoral counselor with Lutheran Family Services of Iowa, join Andy and Sarah to talk about mental health and veterans, specifically how the demands placed on our service men and women impact their mental health, how both deployment and return home have different wellness effects, how military families are also affected by end of service, and how the church is well-suited to care for veterans and their families.
