July 18 – 20, 2017 Engaging Community Clergy To Support Veterans
The VA Office of Veterans Experience and Genesis Behavioral Health of Laconia partnered with the Manchester VA Medical Center, the White River Junction VA Medical Center, the VHA Office of Rural Health and the National VA Chaplain Center to deliver three programs in July called the Community Clergy Training Program. Sessions were held at Lamb’s Chapel in Berlin on July 18; at the Congregational Church in Laconia on July 19 and at Catherine of Siena Parish in Manchester on July 20.
Members of the Guard or Reserves returning from deployment and those who have left military service, arrive home looking to reintegrate into civilian life. The challenges of reintegration, coupled with issues that may be tied to their service, can result in problems that go unrecognized or develop slowly. When these issues become critical, veterans are most likely to seek information and support from people they know. Many veterans seeking mental health support start with their local clergy and members of the faith community. To assist local clergy in responding to these situations, the National VA Chaplain Center joined with VHA Office of Rural Health to create the Rural Clergy Training program. The goal is to provide clergy and faith community members with the tools they need when a veteran seeks their aid.
