2014 Veterans Mental Health Summit
Creating a community of excellent care for military Veterans and families

Houston, TX (July 15, 2014)— Meeting the mental health care needs of Veterans and their families is among one of the highest priorities of the VA, communities and organizations in the Southeast Texas Gulf Coast Region. Veterans, family members and Veteran-serving organizations from Harris, Galveston, Montgomery, Fort Bend and nearby counties are slated to attend the 2014 Veterans Mental Health Summit.

This one-day event scheduled for August 15, 2014 at 8:00 a.m. on the campus of the University of St. Thomas will highlight how veteran-serving and nonprofit organizations, schools, companies, and local, state and federal government agencies in the Southeast Texas Gulf Coast Region work together to provide resources, build or sustain collaborative efforts, and identify additional support for the mental health and wellness of Veterans and their families.

The summit will begin with a presentation of colors and “A Soldier’s Story” re-enactment by the Buffalo Soldiers and remarks by Texas Senator Leticia Van de Putte, Chair of the Veteran Affairs and Military Installations Committee, Adam Walmus, BA, MHA, MA, F.A.C.H.E., Director of the Michael E. DeBakey VAMC and Mayor Pro-Tem Ed Gonzalez, Council Member, District H.

Breakout sessions focusing on Navigating the Veterans Health Administration & Veterans Benefits Administration, as well as the impact of peer support, family services, employment services, faith communities, and local community resources will follow.  A panel discussion with Veterans and Veteran’s family members will examine and discuss some of the critical issues and evolving needs of the Veteran community is also planned for the Summit.

Newly added to this year’s Summit is the inaugural, Excellence in Veterans Assistance Award, given to individuals and organizations in the Southeast Texas Gulf Coast Region that have made significant contributions to Veteran reintegration efforts. It also recognizes those whose efforts have inspired patriotism, provided service to others, and offered hope to Veterans and/or their families while demonstrating collaboration, leadership, and integrity.

There is no cost to attend, but advanced registration is REQUIRED to attend.  Medical and mental health providers, social workers, students, Veteran-serving organizations, community members, Veterans, and family members are encouraged to attend. 

Online registration for the 2014 Veterans Mental Health Summit is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014VeteransMHSummit.  For help or questions, contact Rebecca Lancaster, PhD, HSPP at 713-794-7144.

The 2014 Veterans Mental Health Summit is a collaborative, community event between the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center, City of Houston - Office of Veterans Affairs, Mental Health America of Greater Houston, Gulf Coast Center and Hope for the Warriors®.
