Tomekia Wynn, a licensed clinical social worker, was recently hired as the 307th Bomb Wing’s director of psychological health.

Wynn served in the Army before becoming a social worker in civilian life. In 2019, She went on the earn a master’s degree in the field.

“I chose social work because it’s so broad, you can really make changes in people’s lives.”

While working in veterans affairs, she realized the transition from military service member to civilian status can be difficult. This encouraged her to seek employment on a military installation, where she could proactively aide service members and their families.

“If I can help them while they’re still in, it makes the transition easier as they transition out,” said Wynn.

Wynn encouraged Airmen, civilian federal employees, and families of the 307th Bomb Wing to reach out if they are struggling with any form of stress management. She pointed out work, life, relationship and communication issues as some examples. Wynn also mentioned other areas like parenting skills and deployment adjustments.  

She emphasized some stressors surrounding the current climate.

“A lot of things are being mandated that people are having a hard time dealing with, that’s something they can come in and speak to me about,” said Wynn.

One of the biggest challenges she acknowledges is that some people are hesitant to seek mental health treatment, because they view it as a ‘weakness.’ She hopes to aide in changing that stigma and promote an atmosphere of comfort and strength around mental health help.
