Description

The Spouse Support Group is designed for family members and friends who provide support and care to Veterans struggling with the invisible wounds of trauma. These invisible wounds not only affect the Veteran but effect all family members as well.  Through carefully chosen equine assisted activities members of the group explore the issues that caregiver's struggle with on a daily basis.  They learn how to apply coping skills and strategies to help them to take care of themselves as well as help to build healthier relationships.  A mental health specialist and an equine specialist facilitate each session as they partner the group members with horses in activities that provide an in the moment experience and learning.  The facilitators, horses and the members themselves provide a safe space of support and learning.
