BILLINGS – Veterans heard about what they can do if they come back from war with a traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder.

The University of Montana’s Neural Injury Center put on a workshop for veterans and families at the Billings Clinic Mary Alice Fortin Education Center on Saturday.

The speakers helped give an understanding of injuries and PTSD.

Those attending learned there is more information about diagnosis, treatment and help.

“We hope they walk away with more knowledge of what these kind of things are and what they look like but also more hope,” said Cindi Laukes, director of the center. “There are things we can do. It’s always been hard. It’s more recognized now. There’s more information out there that maybe it’s ok to get help.”

More workshops from the Neural Injury Center are planned for other places in Montana.
