The Lone Star Veterans Association is working on a network of mental health professionals and peer mentoring groups throughout the city that work with veterans and their experiences in the military. This can be for veterans who experience PTSD, anxiety, depression, anger, and fatigue.
We promote various support groups that are peer mentoring organizations that have veterans helping veterans.
The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance of Greater Houston is host to one of the largest networks of mental health support groups. Their support groups provide a continuation of care during and after professional health counseling. Their groups are designed for specific populations, one of them being veterans. The veteran support group meets every Wednesday at the VA Domiciliary. Click here to learn more about the group. DBSA Greater Houston has a variety of groups and mental health services for veteran and family members. You can visit their website, www.DBSAHouston.org to learn more.
We also are developing a pro bono counseling program to give veterans access to mental health professionals.
