Mental Health America (MHA) of Greater Houston is excited to announce registration for the second Veterans Court Advocacy and Mentoring Program (VCAMP) of 2017 is open!

We welcome veterans from across the state to join us November 1st through 3rd at Combined Arms for the three-day training. VCAMP focuses on training veterans to be volunteer Veteran Court Mentors, providing behavioral health education and innovative tools and technical assistance to develop local programs, and increasing capacity for existing veterans treatment courts. Workshop topics include suicide prevention and intervention, strategic planning, family resiliency, substance abuse, mentoring skills, resource coordination, and mindfulness.

Prior to attending VCAMP, individuals must be endorsed by a Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) Peer Services Coordinator. Peer Services Coordinators act as the liaison between individuals and the training organization, in conjunction with MHA, to organize training logistics. MVPN 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 state training management team, which serves as an official notification of mentorship.

Please join us for our November meeting of the Center for School Behavioral Health Collaborative. Specific program details TBD 

The Center works collaboratively with school districts, public and nonprofit child-serving organizations, institutions of higher learning, community stakeholders including advocacy groups, students and parents to develop and implement projects and policies that promote the well-being of school-age children, prevent the downward trajectory of untreated behavioral health concerns, and appropriately address the needs of children with behavioral disorders, as well as the needs of children that have experienced trauma. The Center promotes participatory research to incubate innovative models addressing the behavioral health needs of school-age children in an integrated manner, and advocates for the implementation of sensible public and school policies to close gaps in services and eliminate constraints that exacerbate the behavioral health needs of students.
