Online virtual ‘fair’ offers live interface with informative, front-line resources.
The Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) will host an online “Virtual Mental Health Fair” on Facebook, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (EDT) June 19.
Government and non-profit organizations dedicated to mental health care for service members, veterans and their families will showcase their resources in a virtual exhibit hall where beneficiaries, caregivers and health care providers can browse among booths to view and access resources.
Fair-goers will see photos (booths) of each organization where they will find select links to information and resources. Additionally, participants will be able to join live question and answer chats at the booths during pre-appointed hours.
Participating organizations include those below and more are signing up daily.
To attend the virtual fair, visit the DCoE page on Facebook June 19.
