This quarter, Beasley Best Community Of Caring is dedicated to helping our veterans who have served our country, as well as their families. We’re working with Home Base, a national organization that provides mental health services for Veterans who have served our grateful nation. The organization, based in Boston with a division in Southwest Florida, provides extensive mental health and wellness support for vets and their families.
Home Base also creates content that is relevant to the well-being of vets and their families. Their podcast, Home Base Nation, focuses on this. This week, we’re calling attention to a recent episode featuring an interview with Air Force Veteran John Hicks, who participated in Home Base’s Intensive Care Program, as well as Jennifer Kneeland, Expressive Arts Director at Home Base, and Dr. Lisa Wong, co-director of the Arts and Humanities Initiative at Harvard Medical School. They discuss how sometimes the process of healing is not achieved through talking, but through art.
