OCE Partnership Impact

Veterans can join free online support groups, find peer-to-peer help anytime thanks to VHA collaborations

During periods of physical distancing and potential isolation, it’s critical that Veterans find support no matter where they are, especially if they’re facing an illness or health condition. Many Veterans Health Administration (VHA) collaborations are with nongovernmental health care organizations that offer online support groups Veterans can join anytime, at no cost:

VHA’s Office of Community Engagement (OCE) is VHA’s partnerships hub and supports the development of these and many other partnerships.

“VHA partnerships and collaborations that offer support groups align with VA’s ‘Whole Health’ concept, and provide specific resources for Veterans’ health concerns,” said Georgeanna Bady, health systems specialist for OCE. “Most importantly, support groups extend a sense of community to Veterans and their families, caregivers, and survivors.”

For more information on OCE’s work and updates on these collaborations throughout the year, please visit VA.gov/healthpartnerships
