Join VCNCT members and partners, Disabled Veterans National Foundation, Transformance, Mental Health America of Greater Dallas, and Dallas County Veterans Services Office, for a Commmunity Forum on mental health. This forum will host a panal of Representatives to discuss Senate Bill 55.
The SB 55 created a grant program at the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to support community programs for Veteran’s mental health. Senator Nelson sought $21 million in state matching funds, over the next two years, to support local efforts to help Veterans struggling with mental health problems. Upon approval, it created a 42 million opportunity for agencies to provide these services. “This funding stream will help communities across Texas launch programs that will meet the specific needs of Veterans in their area and help to deal with the psychological wounds of war.”
We invite Veterans, your families, and Veteran Service Organizations to come together and discuss what the current and future state of Mental Health looks like for Texas Veterans. Resources and information booths will also be available.
