  2. Discover how these concerns can be different because of military service.
  3. Discuss experiences and consequences of deployment on women’s mental health.
  4. Examine challenges and barriers for women service members seeking help.
  5. Identify and discuss symptoms, warning signs, resources, and how to help women service members seek the help they want and need.
