    An Other-Than-Honorable discharge means that a veteran was separated under conditions less than honorable. This discharge characterization deprives veterans of VA benefits, including physical and mental health treatment; limits their job prospects; damages reputations; and destroys self–esteem. Especially for those suffering from mental health conditions, these service-related disabilities should not preclude veterans from receiving care, benefits, and respect. A discharge upgrade can remove these barriers and allow veterans to receive the benefits that they deserve.

    In this presentation, attorneys will learn about military life and discharges, the mental health conditions that plague our nation’s defenders, and the discharge upgrade process. The training will discuss the discharge upgrade boards and the burdens the veteran must meet in order to receive an upgrade. We will discuss best practices for brief writing and the type of evidence to include with an application.
