Unified Family Behavioral Health Center for Military Veterans and Their Families

Description:

When a veteran returns from Iraq or Afghanistan, often with post-traumatic stress disorder or brain injury, the Veterans Administration provides behavioral health care to the service person but not to his/her family. Now a VA medical center and a regional hospital network will co-locate behavioral health services to integrate therapy and community referrals for the military family. Collaborating across systems, mental health professionals can also stabilize potentially volatile situations with rapid assessment, medications and social services and then transition the veteran, spouse or child into convenient, affordable local care.
