The Journey Home from War: Assisting Veterans and Communities to Heal

Perspectives on Science and History Lecture Series

Since WWI, families and communities have welcomed home their military heroes from war with recognition. Today, veterans are returning with a new challenge: how to keep serving here at home. Monica Matthieu, professor of social work at Saint Louis University, will explore how researchers and clinicians in the Department of Veterans Affairs are promoting access to health care and educating communities on mental health, trauma, and suicide prevention. Matthieu will also share how her research collaboration with a St. Louis–based national nonprofit, The Mission Continues, is engaging veterans in volunteering in communities all across America. 

Presented in collaboration with the Academy of Science–St. Louis.
