U.S. Military Provides New Mental Care Assistance to Georgia’s Wounded Warriors (March 10)

Joel Foster

The United States European Command and U.S. Embassy in Tbilisi are supporting the March 2-14 visit of a U.S. military psychologist to Georgia to provide training mental healthcare providers in Georgia’s Ministry of Defense. This training will improve multinational collaboration and delivery of mental health care to the Georgian Armed Forces, particularly to Georgia’s Wounded Warriors. The training will include topics on mild traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress, combat and operational stress, psychological first aid, and resiliency. This training — to provide the highest quality of mental healthcare to Georgia’s Wounded Warriors — will further strengthen the deepening strategic relationship between the United States European Command and the Georgian Ministry of Defense.
