Veterans and Military
The Naomi Ruth Cohen Institue for Mental Health Education partners with The Chicago School of Professional Psychology’s Student Association for Military Mental Health on various educational programs. Furthermore, the institue is continually making connections with the local Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legions to start the process of banding together and promoting social change.
In November 2017, the Naomi Ruth Cohen Institue was honored to have Andy Weiss share the effects of the tragic loss of his son, 1st LT Daniel Weiss, to suicide.
The Naomi Ruth Cohen Institue was proud to present a half-day training on Stress Management for the 85th Army Reserve in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Two students from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology; Tim Burnett and Brittney Briggs, facilitated experiential exercises that highlighted stress-related symptoms, coping strategies, and management styles. Jill Glenn, Director of Community Partnerships at the Chicago School, provided oversight of the project.
