The NH Commission on PTSD & TBI launches the 2017 S.H.A.R.E.
The NH Commission on PTSD & TBI launched its second survey of NH Veterans. Information generated from this survey will aid in the development of targeted and relevant life style, employment, and health opportunities for NH Veterans, Service Members and their families.
The 2012 survey resulted in prioritization of access to quality health care, not only VA care, but education and training for civilian providers across all health care and service fields in order to expand competent and respectful treatment opportunities in the veteran’s own community. Education and training of providers is still ongoing and facilities across the state are now asking “Have you or a family member ever served in the military?” in order to improve respect, appreciation, and appropriate care planning when the answer is YES.
Let your voice be heard! What you tell us today will improve the lives of NH Veterans for generations to come. Complete the survey online in just minutes. Paper version is also available.
