Make the Connection

health, relationships, and life. Whether your military role ended two decades ago or two days ago, you share with Veterans everywhere the common
bonds of duty, honor, and service to our nation. Every day, Veterans connect with resources and support to manage and confront the issues they
may have and find solutions for improving their lives.
The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics at Endeavors provide high-quality, accessible, and integrated mental health care to Veterans and their families regardless of role, discharge status, or ability to pay.

Vet Centers are community-based counseling centers that provide a wide range of social and psychological services, including professional readjustment counseling to eligible Veterans, active duty service members, including National Guard and Reserve components, and their families. Readjustment counseling is offered to make a successful transition from military to civilian life or after a traumatic event experienced in the military. Individual, group, marriage and family counseling is offered in addition to referral and connection to other VA or community benefits and services. Vet Center counselors and outreach staff, many of whom are Veterans themselves, are experienced and prepared to discuss the tragedies of war, loss, grief and transition after trauma.
The Center provides assistance for active duty, retired, and veteran service members with The Military Veteran Peer Network Project. In addition to integrated health services, we train and team you with a “Battle Buddy,” a veteran who provides peer-to-peer role support. The Center and MVPN also works with the Texas Veteran Jail Diversion & Trauma Recovery Project (TVJDTR), training law enforcement on effective crisis intervention strategies when encountering a veteran experiencing the effects of mental illness.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) released a mobile app that offers step-by-step guidance for those who are trying to support someone they care about and for those who are concerned about their own emotional wellbeing.
