Date:4/21/2009

IRVINE, Calif., April 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Saturday, April 25 from 9 a.m. until noon, the National Alliance on Mental Illness-Orange County (NAMI-OC) will bring together speakers, agencies and service providers who serve returning veterans and their families.

Front Line conferences provide important information on PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), traumatic brain injury (TBI), depression and suicide prevention. The conference is designed not only for those veterans and family members who are seeking assistance, but also includes information and resources for those who serve veterans, such as pastors, counselors, social workers and police officers.

The conference will be held on April 25 at Kaiser Permanente in Irvine (6650 Alton Pkwy). It will include presentations by Dr. Clayton Chau (of The OC Health Care Agency) on issues facing Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, representatives from Orange County Veterans' Court and a detailed discussion on accessing Veteran's Benefits.

Representatives from the newly developed Orange County Veterans Court will be presenting on how their collaboration with local agencies is working to establish viable options for a select group of offenders whose needs are better met through treatment interventions rather than incarceration.

Community Resource tables will be available and include: Project Return to Work, Long Beach VAMC, Veterans Service Organization, St. Jude's Brain Injury Network and NAMI-OC.
