A new article and video from the Movember Foundation features KCC student-veterans who are making connections with each other.
The article describes “Making Connections for Mental Health and Wellbeing among Men and Boys,” an initiative funded by Movember and delivered in partnership with Prevention Institute to places including KCC.
The video focuses on Robert Perez and the “PhotoVoice” component of the initiative, including KCC students and how they shows how they build connections at the college. Please note: The video includes content which some people might find disturbing.
KCC has a number of services for veterans, including a Veteran’s Association and services offered through the Office of Financial Aid.
