LPGA Volvik Championship Returns to Ann Arbor, May 22-28
The second annual event will be held in Ann Arbor at Travis Pointe Country Club from May 22-28, 2017. Over 30,000 spectators are anticipated to attend. As part of this Memorial Day Weekend event, the LPGA is again partnering with the National Network of Depression Centers (NNDC) to support veteran mental health.
By conservative estimates, 1 in 5 Americans has firsthand experience with depression, bipolar illness, or another mood disorder. Despite the overall resilience of the veteran population, service members, veterans, and military families struggle with these and additional mental health issues which can be triggered by the experience of traumatic events and long separations.
The NNDC brings together 26 Member Centers from leading U.S. academic medical universities to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of depressions, bipolar illnesses, and related mood disorders. We gratefully acknowledge the men and women serving our country abroad and at home for their service, commitment, and sacrifices.
