5th Annual A Day to Change Direction
2020 marks five years of our relationship with the VFW and our joint effort of A Day to Change Direction! Everyone is invited to participate, whether you are a VFW member or not. In past years we have focused on the Five Signs and the film, Into the Light. This year, we would like to celebrate our relationship by asking VFW posts to help their local veteran community. Activities can center around the Healthy Habits of Emotional Wellbeing. Due to COVID-19 a lot of Posts may gather virtually. The tools we are providing below can be used in both virtual and in-person events.
As we all know, it’s important to recognize when someone is in emotional pain. It is equally important to learn basic habits that keep us emotionally healthy.
Everyone can learn these five habits and A Day to Change Direction will celebrate how we can support each other practice these habits. If everyone is more open and honest about mental health, we can prevent pain and suffering, and those in need will get the help they deserve.
