VACIHCS Hosts Mental Health Summit

VACIHCS hosted their annual Mental Health Summit at Camp Dodge with a focus on Women Veterans. This successful event featured VACIHCS staff showcasing our services with the many outside partners who joined us and a brainstorming session that highlighted what we and the community are doing well in terms of providing mental health services especially to women, how we can improve as a larger collaborative team, and how we can ensure we are connecting Veterans with needed services. A women Veteran shared her story which highlighted the success we can all have when we work together for Veterans. Thank you to The Gold Star Museum for hosting and allowing our participants to enjoy your space.
