VA Mental Health – Support for Health Care Providers

handshake

Health Care Provider

Overview

Health care providers, both inside and outside of the VA health care system, can play an essential role in helping America’s Veterans access the mental health support they have earned.

Explore these pages to learn about the mental health issues that Veterans may face and access VA clinical training and resources that can enhance your delivery of health care and ultimately improve Veterans’ health and well-being.

Community Provider Toolkit

VA clinicians and staff within the Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention developed a Community Provider Toolkit to help you work with Veterans and navigate VA benefits.

Working With Various Veteran Populations

Knowing your client’s personal and military background can help you shape your treatment plan and identify appropriate resources and benefits.

Navigating Veteran Benefits and Services

Understanding VA services can help you coordinate care for your patient and take advantage of VA benefits.

In Clinicians' Own Words

Clinicians can use Make the Connection as a tool to engage with Veterans and their family members who may be reluctant to seek support.
