VA Community Mental Health Summit
SAAHEC and the Gulf Coast Veterans Healthcare System recognizes that there are unmet needs and perceived gaps in available services for Veterans and their families in our service area. As of December 2019, over 50,664 veterans were enrolled in the Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care system. The annual VA Community Mental Health Summit is held in Mobile, Alabama each year. Its purpose is to enhance mental health care for Veterans and their family members through dialogue and collaboration between the VA and the Community to ensure they receive timely and appropriate care. It focuses on Suicide Prevention and Improving Veteran access to Mental Health Services, and provides opportunities to improve care coordination, identify unmet needs and barriers to care, and recommend solutions to close gaps in care. The Summit is FREE for healthcare providers and community partners to attend. Additionally, FREE CEUs are offered.
The 2020 Summit is still in the planning phase. Check back later for more details!
