In today's episode, Erin talks with Licensed Professional Mental Health Counselor (LPMHC), Mark Jorges. Mark came on to speak on issues he has seen in service-members who transition and the mental health challenges they face related to adjustment, navigating the VA process, and civilian life.
Mark is a U.S. Army veteran and saw all of these issues during multiple iterations of military service. He served in the AD Army, Reserves, and National Guard and understands the obstacles service members face trying to navigate mental health resources after the military.
