Supporting Military-Connected Students

September 1, 2021
Categories:

Recent events regarding American military operations in Afghanistan are affecting our military-connected community. The Carolina Veterans Resource Center (CVRC) has been working with military-connected students to provide support on this matter. We write to share information and resources that you may find useful in providing guidance and support.  

Our military-connected students may exhibit a number of stress-related behaviors that could signal a need for additional support and resources:

  • Frustration, sadness, helplessness, grief or distress
  • Anger or feelings of betrayal
  • Changes in mental health, such as symptoms of PTSD, depression or anxiety
  • Lack of sleep
  • Increase in substance use/abuse
  • Social avoidance or aversion to media

Military-connected students may not feel comfortable or ready to share their experiences in the context of a classroom discussion. If a student appears to need a break from class, please consider offering them flexibility in terms of attendance or participation, as appropriate. 

It can be helpful to encourage veterans to understand that feelings of distress are a normal reaction, and they should not try to avoid or repress them. Often, these feelings will naturally run their course. If they continue without easing up, or if a military-connected student appears overwhelmed, please connect them with the Carolina Veterans Resource Center (CVRC), the Dean of Students staff, or Counseling and Psychological Services—or submit a Care Referral directly through the Dean of Students website. 

We encourage you to learn more about this student community by reaching out directly to the CVRC and/or participating in an upcoming Green Zone training. The Green Zone program educates participants about the experience of our veterans and military-connected students and how to support them inside and outside the classroom.
