With the war over in Afghanistan, many veterans are re-experiencing their injuries in isolation. Moral injury results in shame, guilt, and isolation. Processing shame and guilt in isolation exacerbates PTSD symptomology and contributes to the growing veteran/military suicide rate. Veterans need a community of loving relationships, and pastoral care providers to walk through this process with them as they process their moral injuries. The community’s role in healing is critical and simple: show up and love others.
At Proximity, attendees will hear war stories with a purpose, better understand moral injury, learn how to play a role in the healing process, and be encouraged to perform simple acts of loving others.
If you are a veteran in need of immediate support, please call the Veterans Crisis Line at 800.273.8255 or Colorado Crisis Services at 844.493.8255.
