Wisconsin Operation Immersion (WOI) 2.0 is a three-day event being held Oct. 21-23 at Fort McCoy in Sparta, Wis., that aims to provide health care professionals and community-based programs with a better understanding of military life. The program is designed to help reduce the stigma of mental health and substance abuse within military populations and to enable a more effective approach to treatment and resource management.
Participants will be immersed into a simulated military culture. Possible activities include sleeping in the army barracks, physical training, eating “Chow Hall” meals and touring military vehicles, as well as hearing stories of Wisconsin National Guard members and attending workshops/sessions.
