Military Mind Symposium 2019

Military Mind Business Symposium 2019

The 2019 Combat Stress Military Mind Business Symposium, sponsored by Thales, will explore the practical ways in which your company can ensure the workplace wellbeing of your veteran and reservist workforce. It will focus on:

  • 100 years of veteran mental health – reflection, progression and the work place

Military Mind will explore the value that former servicemen and women add to an organisation’s productivity and the practical ways that companies can ensure the workplace wellbeing of their veteran and reservist employees.

The event will centre on what support companies can implement, regardless of their size or sector. Experts in the field of military mental health, as well as those in the corporate sector who employ veterans, will join clinical specialists from Combat Stress to present methods that businesses have used to create a supportive environment for veterans and reservists at work.
