TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Red Cross will be offering “free” resiliency workshops for members of the Armed Forces, veteran’s and their families.

According to a news release, the virtual workshops aim to build resilience and coping skills, manage stress, and ease symptoms related to trauma.

Licensed Red Cross mental health care volunteers will be conducting small group discussions that aim to help people better understand how they can reconnect with themselves and their families, their peers, and their communities.

The next session will be on Saturday, Feb. 26 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.

The Red Cross lists several reasons for military members and families to attend:

  • Learn easy-to-use resilience-building skills and practice them in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Participants can attend anonymously and have no obligation to participate in additional workshops.
  • Hands-on and interactive; participants direct the conversation and determine which activities and skills to use.
  • Participants looking for additional resources or who express a need for mental health support will receive referrals to appropriate sources of support.

The workshop is free. CLICK HERE to register.
