Now In-Network with Tri-West and How to Support Veterans with Mental Health Issues.

BIG NEWS! We are now In-Network with TriWest/VA Community Care Network.

There are several ways to support veterans with mental health issues. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Encourage them to seek professional help: One of the most important things you can do for a veteran with mental health issues is to encourage them to seek professional help. Mental health professionals can provide the necessary counseling, therapy, and medication to help them manage their symptoms.
  2. Be a good listener: Sometimes, veterans just need someone to talk to. Be there to listen to their concerns and offer support. Let them know that you care and that they are not alone.
  3. Educate yourself: Educate yourself on the mental health issues that affect veterans. This will help you understand what they are going through and how you can best support them.
  4. Offer practical help: Offer to help with practical tasks such as grocery shopping, cooking, or transportation to appointments. This can be especially helpful for veterans who may be struggling to manage day-to-day tasks due to their mental health issues.
  5. Show appreciation: Let veterans know that their service is appreciated and that they are valued members of the community. This can help boost their self-esteem and sense of purpose.
  6. Connect them with support groups: There are many support groups for veterans with mental health issues. These groups provide a safe and supportive environment where veterans can connect with others who are going through similar experiences.

Remember, supporting a veteran with mental health issues can be challenging, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. By offering your support, you can make a real difference in their life.
