VA Hires Over 1600 Mental Health Professionals To Meet Goal, Expands Access To Care And Outreach Efforts, Directs Nationwide Community Mental Health Summits

Today, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced that it has met the goal to hire 1,600 new mental health professionals outlined in President Obama’s Aug. 31, 2012, Executive Order to Improve Access to Mental Health Services for Veterans, Service Members, and Military Families.


“Meeting this hiring milestone significantly enhances our ability to improve access to care for those Veterans seeking mental health services and demonstrates our continued commitment to the health and well-being of the men and women who have served the Nation,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. “Meeting this goal is an important achievement, but we recognize that we must continue to increase access to the quality mental health care Veterans have earned and deserve.”


As of May 31, 2013, VA has hired a total of 1,607 mental health clinical providers to meet the goal of 1,600 new mental health professionals outlined in the Executive Order. Additionally, VA has hired 2,005 mental health clinical providers to fill existing vacancies.   VA has also hired 318 new peer specialists towards the specific goal of 800 peer specialists by Dec. 31, 2013 as outlined in the Executive Order.  VA expects to meet that goal as well.


VA also recognizes that meeting the needs of Veterans and their families requires collaboration and partnership between VA, other federal agencies, and local communities. “Locally-driven summits provide a well-established method to strengthen our community partnerships, and they have been successful in support of VA’s goal to end homelessness among Veterans,” said Veterans Health Administration, Undersecretary for Health, Dr. Robert Petzel. “The President is directing all VA health care systems nationwide to conduct locally-driven Mental Health Summits to further engage with local community partners and nurture community engagement to address the broad mental health needs of Veterans and their families.”


Each VA health care system will reach out to relevant Veteran Service Organizations, community based organizations, health care providers, and local governments to develop and conduct the Summits.


VA provides a full range of comprehensive mental health services across the country.  In Fiscal Year 2012, more than 1.3 million Veterans received specialized mental health care from the VA.  This number has risen each year from 927,052 in Fiscal Year 2006. In addition to hiring more mental health professionals, VA is expanding the use of innovative technology to serve Veterans in rural or underserved areas. VA expects to double the number of Veterans receiving care from tele-mental health services to over 800,000 in fiscal year 2013, and has increased the number of Vet Centers, which provide readjustment counseling and referral services from 233 in 2008 to 300 in 2012.

In November 2011, VA launched an award-winning, national public awareness campaign called Make the Connection, which is aimed at reducing the stigma associated with seeking mental health care and informing Veterans, their families, friends, and members of their communities about VA resources.  More information on Make the Connection can be found at


Mental health professionals interested in seeking employment with the Department of Veterans Affairs can obtain information at  Veterans and their families interested in learning more about the mental health services provided by VA can go to

Letter To The Editor


I have not written in a while. Last summer, Ross Morse decided against printing two of what I thought were very entertaining and informative letters.


He really, really ticked me off. However, with the passing of Elsie and thinking about the Morse family’s loss and thinking about my own mother, Eva, and crying for both... Anyway, I feel Ross and I share a special bond with the passing of our mothers. I will never forget my mother nor his.

We have been busy at TOPS lately with having  our yard sale last weekend and we would like to say thanks to all of those who stopped by to say “Hi.” The week before that we had Bingo, which was a good time. Every once in a while it’s nice to just relax. 


KOPS Best Loser for the week was Peggy and TOPS Best Loser was Mickey. Great job ladies. We had runners up who also had nice weight loss. So, I say Kudos to all who had a loss. Keep up the good work. Miss Angel is Irene. 


We talked about our up and coming events. Then we had Royalty. That is when we recognize our members who have had a weight loss for the month. Stewart had a 4.2 loss, Thom a 4.8 loss and myself with a 6.6 loss. Flowers were handed out to the other members for their effort. So, Congrats. 


Then we ended our meeting with a open mike night, which is always a nice conversation and ideas. We soon will be having our recipe exchange night and that sounds like it’s going to be lots of fun. 


We always welcome new members and if anyone is interested in joining us, we meet on Tuesday nights at 5:30 pm for our weigh in and at 6:30 pm for our meeting. Any questions please call Stuart Pike at 798-5981 or Pat Smith at 435-5333.


Introduce your family to the idea of Go, Slow, and Whoa foods to help them eat healthier. Hope everyone has a good week and see you all lighter next week!
