The purpose of our three-day Veterans Court Advocacy & Mentoring Training (VCAMP) is to train veterans as volunteer Veteran Court Mentors. The curriculum includes behavioral health education and technical assistance to develop their own local mentoring programs and increase capacity within an existing Veterans Treatment Court serving justice-involved veterans.
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.
