Through a ground-breaking collaboration between Georgia Tech Research Institute and The ArtReach Foundation®, on July 22 and 23, The ArtReach Foundation will bring together mental health professionals from the fields of creative arts therapies and innovative technologies to present how novel applications are being used to assist active duty military, veterans and their families with issues relating to combat PTSD and mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). The conference will be held at the Georgia Tech Research Institute Center, 260 14th Street, Atlanta, GA. Continuing education credits are available for attendees for multiple categories.

The creative arts and technological advances are bridges that offer significant contributions to the mental health and resiliency of our military personnel, veterans, and their families. These advances include the capacity to reach huge numbers in need of mental health interventions. Additionally, they provide opportunities to heal the divide within, and between, military and civilian populations. This conference will present many of these applications, and will address ethical issues central to best practices in the use of the creative arts and technology with these populations.

The ArtReach Foundation's mission has been to influence and assist, through creative expressive arts therapies, the healing of military personnel, veterans, their families, and professional providers who have experienced the traumatic effects of war and violence.
