Military veterans returning from international combat deployments often return with memories and images from their exposure to war and the effects of war on others long after their return home.
Those memories are often referred to as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and PTSD has a direct effect on the veterans, their families, friends and career. Veterans are not sure how to deal with PTSD and the results are often traumatic and deadly. Symptoms of untreated trauma include addiction, poverty, divorce, homelessness, and incarceration. Approximately 22 veterans commit suicide each day because of PTSD.
Brentwood Baptist Church is offering a 12-week Reboot Combat Recovery seminar at The Church at Avenue South, 2519 Franklin Pike, beginning Wednesday, Sept. 15, beginning with dinner at 6 p.m. Leaders of the Reboot class are accomplished veterans of military services who provide a Bible-based training for veterans and their wives. The Church at Avenue South will provide childcare for veteran’s children as well.
Reboot Combat Recovery is an international peer-led trauma healing, with nearly 300 course locations spanning 34 states and 7 countries.
Veterans who graduate from the course overwhelmingly recommend it to others.
The classes are safe, private, peer-led, outcomes-driven and are offered at no cost to veterans and their families.
Veterans may register for the seminar in Nashville at https://rebootrecovery.com/military.
