Mental Health America (MHA) of Greater Houston is excited to announce registration for the second Veterans Court Advocacy and Mentoring Program (VCAMP) of 2017, is open! Registration closes on August 28th!

We welcome veterans from across the state to join us September 6th through 8th at the Harris Center for the three-day training. VCAMP focuses on training veterans to be volunteer Veteran Court Mentors, providing behavioral health education, innovative tools and technical assistance to develop local programs, and increasing capacity for existing veterans treatment courts.  Workshop topics include; suicide prevention and intervention, strategic planning, family resiliency, substance abuse, Mentoring skills, resource coordination, and mindfulness.

Prior to attending VCAMP, individuals must be endorsed by a Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) Peer Services Coordinator.  Peer Services Coordinators act as the liaison between individuals and the training organization, in conjunction with MHA, to organize training logistics.  MVPN Coordinators are responsible for arranging travel, lodging and meals for the duration of the training.  Following completion of the training process, MHA of Greater Houston will send a completion roster to the state training management team, which serves as an official notification of mentorship. 

Registration is now open for the September VCAMP and group rates are available for the Holiday Inn Southwest, 11160 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX 77031. Group Code is MHA
