Meet Philip Metres, Jr., Ph.D.

A Navy combat veteran of Vietnam, Phil Metres has been facilitating NAMI CCNS’ Veterans Support Group for more than two years. As a practicing psychologist for 42 years, he teaches workshops in Combat Stress & PTSD, and finds that humor, detachment, and telling one’s story often helps and can lead to healing. Dr. Metres specializes in helping combat veterans and their families who are readjusting to stateside life.

He holds a Ph.D. from United State International University and considers facilitating the NAMI Cook County North Suburban Veteran’s Group as the highlight of his professional life.
