ar in Afghanistan, CIAV works to ease the tremendous burden borne by U.S. service members and their families. IAVA looks forward to collaborating with such a dedicated and effective group of agencies."

On Tuesday, May 13, 2008 (8:30am-10:15am), RAND Corporation researchers Terri Tanielian and Lisa Jayjox will present the findings of their groundbreaking report Invisible Wounds of War, which has found that one in five Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffer from PTSD or major depression. Later workshop sessions on Monday will focus on the needs of families and children, and the health and economic well-being of service members and new combat veterans.

"We recognize that it is incumbent on the greater community and non-profit agencies like ours to step up and support our service members, veterans and their families through the inevitable stresses of deployment," said Amy Fairweather, CIAV director. "Our colleagues in the Coalition for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans are at the cutting edge of military and veterans services, and our partnership will only strengthen the safety net for those who serve".

"It takes a community of organizations to meet the many diverse needs of veterans and military families," said Bonnie Carroll, founder and chairman of TAPS, the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. "The Coalition for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans provides a place to share best practices and forge new partnerships that benefit the families we serve." She will deliver presentations on meeting family needs and self-care for providers during the conference.
