Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital
Truman VA Veterans Mental Health Council
Purpose: To improve awareness of mental health resources available to Veterans and their families at Truman VA, assist in development of programs, and reduce the stigma of mental health issues.
The Veterans Mental Health Council will act in an advocacy role to behavioral health leadership to provide a Veteran point of view on:
• Mental health issues of Veterans
• VA mental health program development
• Other matters that effect the Veterans who use our mental health services
Who we are:
We are a group of volunteer Veterans, family members and other stakeholders in Veteran mental health services. VA is not involved in selecting council members and council members are not VA employees.
What the Veterans Mental Health Council is not:
A forum to air personal issues. Personal issues should be directed to the Patient Advocate.
Veterans, family members of Veterans, community partners and, as liaisons, VA service providers
Every third Wednesday at 12:00 noon in Room D205 at Truman VA
