Dear Community Representative, 

On behalf of Carl Vinson VA Medical Center and our Mental Health Service Line, I would like to invite you to participate in our first Mental Health Summit. The purpose of the Mental Health Summit is to enhance the mental health and well-being of Veterans and their family members through increased collaboration between the VA and the community.  Our goal is to engage in active dialogue on how we as a community can address the mental healthcare needs of Veterans and their families. Topics of discussion of include: 

  • Who in the community cares for and provides services for Veterans and their families? 
  • What gaps or “disconnects” in mental health services for Veterans and their families who seek services across the entire community continuum of care have been identified? 
  • What information about mental and behavioral health resources in VA and in the community is available? 

The Mental Health Summit will be held on Thursday, August 22, 2013, at the Carl Vinson VA Medical Center, Dublin, GA.  Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. in the auditorium located in building 2B.  The Summit will begin at 9:00 a.m. A draft agenda is attached. 

Please provide the name of your representative to Tyree Williams at by August 12, 2013.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Tyree Williams via e-mail or phone at 478-272-1210 extension 3175. We hope to see you there!
