Wyoming is about to mobilize its largest deployment of National Guards in state history. Embedded with the troops will be a mental health professional who is a PTSD specialist. The commander of the Wyoming Guard believes treating the mental health needs of the National Guard troops is a priority and he has also worked to connect mental health resources in Wyoming communities to those in the military.
