With ‘Inspiring Stories,’ TriWest introduces a new microsite within its Behavioral Health website on TriWest.com dedicated to sharing the personal stories of TriWest employees, Veterans and community members whose first-hand experience with trauma, depression, social, marital and other life challenges forever changed their lives – and set them on a path to healing.
With nearly 20% of adults in the United States affected by mental health conditions, according to the National Institutes of Health, sharing life stories is one way to begin to normalize mental health conversations and inspire others.
‘Inspiring Stories’ shines a light on their journeys with first-hand accounts from those who share their stories and, in the process, start a conversation about traumatic life experiences and healing.
With nearly 20% of adults in the United States affected by mental health conditions, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), sharing life stories is one way to begin to normalize mental health conversations and inspire others.
Visit ‘Inspiring Stories’ and meet Donny Moncrief, a U.S. Army Veteran and Behavioral Health Service Manager at TriWest. Donny’s supportive early family life and education, and his later Army combat service, included successes and military milestones. Yet when he separated from serving, he realized he needed to address his mental health challenges.
At ‘Inspiring Stories,’ you can also meet Michelle Grady, TriWest Communications Liaison, who was severely injured in El Paso, Texas, during a mass shooting on Aug. 3, 2019, at a retail store. Michelle’s account of her injuries, rehabilitation and journey to healing – and her insight gained during her recovery – are instructive in what it means to experience severe trauma and learn that healing is not a linear path.
At ‘Inspiring Stories,’ in addition to the personal accounts of TriWest family members, Veterans and friends who bear visible and invisible wounds, you’ll also find resources, contacts and information where you can learn more.
