The session will cover an overview of mental health issues and then break out into smaller groups. The idea is to put together strategies with community partners.

Speakers include Erica Borggren, who is the director of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs. One of the other sessions is titled "Challenges to Veterans Mental Health" and will be hosted by a clinical psychologist.

The Jesse Brown VA Medical Center opened in 1953.
