The Cheyenne VA Medical Center will host a Mental Health (MH) Summit for key stakeholders in the communities of Southeastern Wyoming.  The MH Summit will provide opportunities for active engagement and dialogue between Cheyenne VA and invited guests including Wyoming Army National Guard Colonel Harold Walker and representatives from state and federal agencies. 

 
The MH Summit is expected to generate mutually beneficial relationships that will address mental healthcare needs of Veteran and their families as well as strengthen the dialogue about Veteran-centric care between Cheyenne VAMC and community partners.  Specific topics of  discussion include Access to VA Services, Enrollment, Benefits; Women’s Services; PTSD/TBI; Homeless, Military Sexual Trauma; SATP; Coordination of MH Services; Veteran’s Court; Wyoming Policy Academy Initiative; Military Culture for Providers and Psychological First Aid and Family Support.
 
Dr. Mark Schutter, Cheyenne VAMC Chief, Mental Health Services Department says, “it is a conference designed to provide some education, but also a work session to move some initiatives forward, like formulating a network of providers of Veteran’s services.”  This national initiative is an important link that will share resources and reinforce the bridge of communication between Cheyenne VA and the community so that all parties are fully aware of the available resources to Veterans and their families. 
 
The event will take place on August 13, 2013 at the Plains Hotel, in Cheyenne, WY from 8:00am to 4:30pm.
