One focus of the conference is on coming traditional and non-traditional means of treating PTSD.
Today’s sessions of the 2012 PTSD Wellness Conference for Veterans were limited to clinicians earning continuing-education credits.
But on Saturday the event opens up for veterans, National Guard and Reserve members, spouses, family members and care givers.
There is no admission charge, and lunch is provided, according to a statement from the New Mexico Department of Veterans’ Services.
The lunch speaker is Lt. Col. William Toguchi, a Vietnam veteran and active-duty Air Force chaplain.
The conference is being held at the Crown Plaza Hotel, 1901 University Blvd. NE at Menaul Boulevard.
