Program overview

The Military Family Research Institute, in partnership with the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, Indiana National Guard and the Department of Veterans Affairs is pleased to present the Battlemind to Home Summit.

The Battlemind to Home Summit brings together a variety of experts each year to inform and educate Indiana professionals on the critical issues facing military-connected families in Indiana’s communities. Our goal for this conference is to help reduce reintegration barriers for veterans, service members and military families. We work to educate attendees on the challenges military-connected families face, and also the opportunities and strengths they bring to our communities. This year the program will also focus on how veterans can be an essential part of their community.

Three tracks

MFRI uses a collaborative approach to plan and execute this event. With nationally recognized experts in all fields, Battlemind presents evidence-informed sessions that address many sensitive and cutting-edge topics. Past summit sessions have covered issues such as suicide, moral injury and community mobilization.

This year’s featured content will address:

  • issues regarding legal needs and support;
  • how to address physical and mental health concerns; and
  • the tools needed to create a sense of community within civilian life for military personnel.

If there are specific topics you would like to see covered or speakers you would like to hear from within these tracks, please reach out to Christy Collette,


Indiana State Bar Association
