Veterans with mental health disabilities may seek mental health care through the VA hospitals and clinics. Of course, many local community organizations also provide mental health care and they are about to get more support for their efforts.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has recently released a Community Provider Toolkit for community organizations that provide assistance to veterans with mental health disabilities. The VA hopes to improve the collaboration between its hospitals and community programs to make sure that every veteran who is in need of mental health care gets the proper service they deserve.
The Community Provider Toolkit notes that assessing whether the patient has served in the military may help to ensure that he or she is aware of the healthcare and support services available. Veterans’ disability benefits are one of the government programs to which veterans may be entitled if they suffer disabling health conditions, such as those requiring mental health care, related to their military service.
For professional help with the application or appeals process for veterans’ disability benefits, a veterans’ disability attorney from Veterans Help Group P.A. is here to help. Navigating the veterans’ disability claim process can be difficult when you require mental health care, which is where your lawyer can be of great benefit to your case.
