VA Community Mental Health Summit (In Person)

August 4, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm EDT


VA Community Mental Health Summit (In Person)

Sustaining our Joint Commitment to Improve Access to Mental Health Care for Veterans and Their Families


The Mental Health Summit aims to enhance the mental health and well-being of Veterans and their family members through increased collaboration among members of VA’s staff and the community. Our goal is to engage in a robust dialogue on ways that we as a community can address the mental health needs of local Veterans and their families. In addition to these new conversations, we will expand on previous discussions to build on the collaborations we have created. The VAMC Chillicothe 2023 MH Summit, along with other community partners will present on topics such as mental health and stigma. It will highlight different areas in which stigma impacts treatment such as mental health, suicide, substance abuse and women. Community agencies will also do presentations to work toward the common goal of providing the best care possible for veterans and engage in partnerships with others.

Topics Include:

  • My Life My Story – a program designed for providers and consumers to focus on “person-first” to destigmatize mental health treatment
  • Challenges of Women win the Military
  • Stigma of Substance Abuse Treatment in Pregnancy
  • Language We Use in Suicide Prevention and It’s Impact on Reaching Out for Help
  • EPIC – *Early Intervention in Psychosis
  • Whole Health and demonstration/participation in yoga
  • Resources Available in the Community for Veterans and VA Programming
  • Vendor Fair and Networking

The event is open to everyone. Complimentary lunch will be provided to those attending the event in person. The event will include VA, Adena Health System, and community organizations that provide services in each of the focus areas. There will be a variety of presentations on clinical care options, research, and resources available to Veterans and their families.
