El Paso, TX (KTSM) — The Department of Veterans Affair in El Paso invites returning service members and their families and those who need additional assistance to attend a Mental Health Summit.
This is an opportunity to establish and enhance positive working relationships with community partners and to better address the broad mental health care needs of Veterans and their families.
Veterans will have an opportunity to sit at the same table, to listen and learn from each other.
Moreover, the VA says veterans cannot receive the quality, coordinated services they need if they are not talking to each other regularly and working together.
The Summit will be held Tuesday, September 10, 2013, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Camino Real Hotel, 101 South Street, El Paso, Texas 79901
