SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Armstrong Atlantic State University hosted a forum on mental health issues pertaining to service members and veterans Wednesday night, including a discussion on post traumatic stress disorder.

This is all part of the university's first ever Military Appreciation Week, celebrating the university's military and veteran students.

Laura Pallini-Bolton from the Office of Veteran Affairs explained the schedule for the rest of the week's activities.

"Tomorrow night we have Domestic Violence Awareness and then Friday we are having a cookout in honor of the Veteran's Week and all the proceeds we get from the fundraisers are going to homeless veterans here in Chatham County."

Friday's cookout will be at 11 a.m. in the Residential Plaza behind Armstrong's Student Union.
