For Policy-Makers

Government BuildingGovernors and State officials are moving above and beyond federal requirements related to support for the National Guard and Reserves as many return from overseas assignments. States are partnering with Veterans Affairs and other agencies in order to insure their State’s health care systems are prepared to meet the needs of veterans returning home from war in need of adequate care…

…and States are clearly feeling the urgency—20 states filed 59 pieces of legislation in 2007 to address the mental health and addictions treatment needs of veterans (from The National Council).

Funding Opportunity

Addressing the Mental Health Needs of Returning Combat Veterans in the Community
Closing Date: May 1, 2009
This Funding Opportunity Announcement from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), solicits applications to study the impact of existing national, state, and/or local community-based programs addressing the adjustment and mental health needs of recent combat veterans, including returning National Guard, Army Reserve, and newly separated active duty personnel.  NIMH expects that knowledge gained will benefit service members and their families, employers, and relevant federal, state, and local agencies, and will inform future initiatives for recently returned combat veterans
