November 2017 VCAMP: Veterans Court Advocacy & Mentoring Program

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.
