Military Support Programs and Networks (M-SPAN) is a portfolio of initiatives within the University of Michigan Depression Center and Department of Psychiatry dedicated to military and veteran mental health and wellness. M-SPAN integrates innovative approaches to outreach, overcoming stigma, and decreasing isolation, and includes the design and delivery of programs for service members, veterans and military families. Each flagship program was developed in response to identified gaps in services, and includes evidence-based approaches that have been tailored for specific populations. A rigorous program evaluation is integral to each initiative. Programs are incubated and evaluated at the University of Michigan, and disseminated through our partners to maximize impact.
We gratefully acknowledge the men and women serving our country abroad and at home for their service, commitment, and sacrifices.
