Event description
To encourage healthy coping skills, SAFE Project sponsors Unpacking Your Emotional Ruck for military-connected individuals.

About this event

As military folks know, the ruck is the backpack that carries all your gear and supplies and can weigh 70-90 pounds. During Unpacking Your Emotional Ruck programming, the ruck represents the unique, emotional weight carried by military-connected individuals that often differs from their civilian counterparts.

This day-long workshop, hosted by the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center, uses evidence-based and anecdotal approaches to identify risk-protective factors and suggests coping strategies for those with military connections. To encourage healthy coping skills, SAFE Project partners with a Marine Corps veteran and military spouse, Richelle Futch, to host Unpacking Your Emotional Ruck workshops.

We will be providing a light breakfast, boxed lunches, and coffee/tea and sodas.

For questions, please email Bill Pinamont, Senior Director of SAFE Veterans at SAFE Project, at bill.pinamont@safeproject.us.

This event is supported by Walmart.
