Military Sexual Trauma
About this Event: Awareness of military sexual trauma (MST) has increased dramatically in recent years. Current reports estimate that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 50 men experience some form of MST, which ranges from threatening sexual remarks or advances to forced sexual activity, during their time in military service. These experiences can be traumatic, with extensive short- and long-term consequences. In this installment of the “Veterans’ Lived Experience” series, George Mason’s MVFI and the Veterans Health and Wellness Foundation are partnering to bring you real stories from veterans of their experiences related to MST, together with resources and tips from mental health experts who work with service members and veterans around these experiences.
Once registration is complete, you will receive an automatic confirmation email with the zoom log in. We encourage you to save it to your calendar, but reminder emails will go out two days prior to the event and an hour prior.
