DMHAS Veterans Services

{10th Mountain Division, Afghanistan}  

Serving Connecticut's Veterans, Citizen Soldiers, and their Families.

 

OUR MISSION:

To assist Military Service Members, Veterans and their Families to excellence in their lives following their experience in war.

We strive daily to further this mission by:

  • Assuring the health and well-being of Service Members, Veterans and their Families by delivering outpatient behavioral health services that are accessible, timely and appropriate
  • Working in close partnership with VA, Vet Centers, Department of Defense, CT Military Department, other state agencies and community providers to:
    • Continually assess the needs of Service Members, Veterans and their families
    • Work cooperatively in developing new programs and services to meet identified needs
  • Building programs and services based on core recovery principles that include person-centered planning, enhanced choice in service planning and access to integrated behavioral health services in the community
  • Assuring that every Veteran is treated with dignity and respect, and that staff relationships with Veterans and their families are based on mutuality, not hierarchy
  • Assuring that every Veteran enjoys timely access to DMHAS services in the same manner as other, similarly-situated citizens seeking our assistance
  • Assuring that service/recovery planning is strength based. No Veteran need risk loss of housing, a job or the support of his community in order to access healthcare services
  • Targeting services to the newest generation of Veterans

OUR MOTTO:

Leave No Veteran Behind
