Understanding Mental Health Injury as a Family

Imagine having a family member away from home for  days, weeks, months at a time. Imagine the feeling we get when they return home from a shift, or time away. Imagine feeling something changed. Imagine feeling that a parent or loved one, is no longer happy. Imagine seeing the changes the war, or a traumatic event does to someone you love.   Imagine being that person who left to serve their country and see how their changes in thoughts and behaviours changes the dynamics in a household. Imagine. What do we do? How do we approach? What should we say? Can we handle talking about it?

At Embracing Empowerment Counselling Services we provide a feeling of safeness, guidance and resources on these very questions.  We continue to empower those who have lost their way through trauma.

Here are a few resources we provide for our Military, Veterans, and First Responders families.  A great reference in helping your loved ones understand what trauma can do without feeling it’s your fault or theirs.
