For this episode of Spouse Spouts Susan and Dave are talking with Cara Loken, the 2016 Armed Forces Insurance National Guard Spouse of the Year.
Cara is the founder of Nebraska Arts for Vets, an organization that brings the arts to our veterans.
"Nebraska Arts for Vets is a creative outlet for veterans that suffer from PTSD, mental issues, physical concerns, and other combat related issues. It is a way for them to take their mind and focus on something else besides the side effects left from war. Our mission is to show our veterans other outlets that can help them focus on creativity and using the imagination to create a masterpiece, or help them tell their stories using different artistic methods. Art therapy is considered by many as a mind-body connection that can influence physiological and psychological symptoms."
Join Susan and Dave as they talk art, veterans, mental health, PTSD, and ways to help!
