Event Details

Mental Health America (MHA) of Greater Houston is excited to announce the second Veterans Court Advocacy and Mentoring Program (VCAMP) for 2017. We welcome veterans from across the state to join us November 1st through 3rd at Combined Arms for a three-day conference. We will focus on training veterans to be volunteer Veteran Court Mentors, provide behavioral health education, and innovative tools and technical assistance to develop local Mentoring Programs and increase the capacity of existing veterans treatment court serving justice-involved veterans. Training topics include suicide prevention and intervention, strategic planning, family resiliency, substance abuse, Mentoring skills, resource coordination, and mindfulness.

A critical element in a veteran’s life-long recovery process is the positive influence of friendship and support from a fellow veteran who has experienced full rehabilitation. The bond of shared experiences creates a connecting factor between the mentor and mentee. There is no substitute for the knowledge that someone with whom they identify has navigated the uncertain path of recovery.

Prior to attending VCAMP, individuals must be endorsed by a Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) Volunteer Coordinator and completed MVPN Basic Training.  If you have not completed the training, please do so before November by connecting with your local Peer Services Coordinator. If you do not know your Peer Services Coordinator, you can find them at www.milvetpeer.net.  For VCAMP, MVPN Volunteer Coordinators act as the liaison between individuals and the training organization, in conjunction with MHA, to organize training logistics. MVPN Volunteer Coordinators are responsible for arranging travel, lodging, and meals for the duration of the training. Following completion of the training process, MHA of Greater Houston will send a completion roster to the Texas Veterans Commission, which serves as an official notification of mentorship.

For more information, contact Rebecca Fowler, Coordinator, Advocacy & Veterans Behavioral Health, at rfowler@mhahouston.org or (713) 523-8963 x 425.
