This training seminar is designed to enhance clinical knowledge of mental health professionals, social workers, case managers, school staff and other providers that work with military families.
The title Charlie Mike was inspired by Special Operations Forces who often use the term as code for Continue Mission. Whether you are experiencing a mission that requires a little extra courage or an active mission that gets interrupted, Charlie Mike is all about making the mission happen. It’s about never giving up until the mission is complete.
Keynote speakers are General Mark Graham (Ret.) and his wife Carol, who are tireless champions of military and civilian efforts to promote mental health and suicide prevention awareness and to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health care.
