Not since the war in Vietnam have our colleges and universities seen such an influx of student/veterans arriving on our campuses after having spent significant time under combat conditions. It has been well documented that such experiences have a lasting affect on those who have served as well as their families.
Humboldt State University Veterans Enrollment and Transition Services have focused their efforts on the transition process. Whether you are transitioning from the military or civilian life everyone has their own timing and tools to cope with major life changes. This page is devoted to education on the different mental health diagnosis that veterans are experiencing and how that translates to civilian life and ultimately student life. Resources in the community and outside of the community, including the Department of Veterans Affairs can be found here.
If you're on this page, then you have taken the first step in taking control of your life and educating yourself and your family on the many tools that are available to assist you with transition.
