Mental Health Awareness Month: How OCE partnerships and innovations contribute to better mental health

While some of the activities described below are on hold at the moment until social distancing restrictions are lifted, VHA’s Office of Community Engagement supports several partnerships and innovations that contribute to Veterans’ mental well-being, which is especially important during Mental Health Awareness Month.


In addition, VHA’s Center for Compassionate Care Innovation (CCI) is making strides in improving and supporting Veterans’ mental health:

CCI supports the Mental Health Mobility Service Dog Initiative, along with VA Offices of Mental Health Services and Prosthetic and Sensory Aids Service. The initiative provides for veterinary health care, specialized equipment, and travel support for Veterans with chronic mobility issues associated with a mental health disorder to help them with some of the costs involved with caring for their service dogs.
