The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will be hosting mental health summits at each of the 152 VA medical centers across the country over the next several weeks. The announcement was made during the Military Family Mental Health Conference at the White House. The mental health summits will provide an opportunity for VA facilities to establish and enhance positive working relationships with their community partners.  Furthermore, these summits will help encourage community engagement in order to better address and understand the broad mental healthcare needs of veterans and their families.
