New Hampshire is holding its first conference focused on the needs of veterans who end up involved in the judicial system.
Friday's "Justice Involved Veterans Conference" in Concord is organized by the New Hampshire Justice Involved Veterans Task Force and sponsored by the state Department of Health and Human Services.
Discussions will be held on post-traumatic stress disorder in veterans and active-duty military; judges addressing how veterans are served; and hearing veterans' voices.
The state has taken other steps to address judicial issues related to veterans. In August, the first session of a court dedicated to helping veterans was held in Nashua District Court and planning is underway for a second court in Grafton County.
