(WBIR) Knox County officials said they're trying to find more ways to help veterans transition into everyday life after coming home from war.

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett and Knoxville Veterans Mental Health Council held a press conference Thursday, announcing their "War Comes Home" forum. They said veterans are five times more likely to seek help from their churches. The forum will encourage congregations and communties to support veterans, stuggling with the stresses of war.

The forum will cover how churches can help veterans find services and support; the event will be at the Knox County Community Action Center at 9 a.m. on May 1.
