Michelle Obama and Jill Biden will appear on NBC's The Night Shift next month for an episode centered on health resources for veterans, the network announced Friday.

Slated to air on Monday, May 4, the episode will highlight the resources available to veterans like Night Shift character TC Callahan (Eoin Macken) and their families through local vet centers.

Additionally, a PSA aimed at furthering the conversation about veterans' mental health featuring Obama, Biden and stars Macken, Jill Flint and Robert Bailey Jr. will debut on NBC.com.

Obama and Biden, along with the three stars, executive producer Gabe Sachs and director Eriq La Salle, met with staff and clients at the Silver Spring Vet Center in Silver Spring, Md., for a roundtable discussion about the issues addressed in the episode.

Both women have made select appearances on scripted series. Obama appeared on Parks and Recreation, Nashville and Jessie in 2014. Dr. Biden made a cameo on the series finale of Parks and Recreation earlier this year and on a 2010 episode of Army Wives.

The Night Shift airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
