When Veteran Guillermo Clara was experiencing troubling mental health issues after returning from deployment, he reached out to the VA for help. There, he was directed to the addicted behavior clinic. During his treatment, he was finally able to gain clarity surrounding the underlying causes of his mental health difficulties.
For the first time in years, he was ready to start setting goals for his future. When he was ready to begin working, the VHA’s compensated work therapy supported employment program gave the head start he needed.
The program provides a starting point for vets who are still in recovery, giving them a chance to gain paid, hands-on work experience using the skills they already have. The social workers there help those with even the most severe mental illnesses and disabilities to find competitive, fulfilling employment.
Keep watching to hear the rest of Guillermo’s touching story and learn more about how the VHA is helping vets on their path to success.
Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
