Well-Being for Veterans and Their Families
Lytle EAP Partners offers our heartfelt appreciation for all the sacrifices our military Servicemembers and their families have made. As Servicemembers and their families transition from active military service to the civilian workforce, there are numerous changes that take place immediately and gradually. Many of these changes, though, can lead to frustrating and stressful times.
We are committed to improving the well-being of the men and women who have served our nation. The following links are for veterans who may encounter new challenges that come with a new lifestyle.
Here are some resources that can help with transitioning from Military to Civilian:
Veteran Career Transition & Civilian Work Life Adjustment
Veteran’s Employment Toolkit is designed to provide veterans with answers and resources in finding and obtaining employment, as well as making career decisions and excelling in the workplace.

In this toolkit, you can learn about Veterans and the military, such as what Veterans bring to the workplace and what the military structure and culture is like. You can also learn how to support employees who are Veterans or members of the Reserve or National Guard in the workplace, through reading about common challenges and how to help, reviewing communication tips, reading a report about Veterans in the workplace, or by downloading handouts to use with EAP clients.
