Latest Texas Veterans Commission News
 
Veterans to see increased access to mental health resources; health care advocacy
 
Veterans across Texas will soon see increased access to mental health resources, health care advocacy and more. Programs within the state of Texas continue to grow as do the number of benefits Veterans can expect, thanks to the strong commitment by its legislators.
 
House Bill 1762, authored by Rep. John Otto and Sen. Eddie Lucio, establishes a permanent health care advocacy team at the Texas Veterans Commission. Veterans will be able to contact Texas Veterans Commission liaisons in U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical facilities in Texas, who will work directly with VA staff to resolve health care related access issues faced by a growing number of Texas Veterans.
 
Rep. Ana Hernandez and Sen. Sylvia Garcia authored House Bill 867, which ensures a permanent Women Veterans Program for the 177,000 Women Veterans in Texas. The Women Veterans Initiative launched in 2011 and has been providing assistance to Women Veterans in areas such as claims representation, employment and outreach. This formalization showcases the commitment the legislature has made in support of Women Veterans.
 
Mental health programs for Veterans will be enhanced thanks to House Bill 19 and Senate Bill 55. The Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) which offers peer to peer counseling for Veterans, will be codified into state statutes, following the passage of House Bill 19, authored by Rep. Susan King and Sen. Donna Campbell. Senate Bill 55, by Nelson will establish the Texas Veterans Initiative, was authored by Sen. Jane Nelson and Rep. King. The initiative is a pilot program that will help address mental health needs of Texas Veterans by providing opportunities for private donors, local communities and more to collaborate and address the mental health needs of Texas Veterans and their families.

 Veterans Newsletter - Your June 12 E-Vets BN9O2616
 
Army Veteran Tim York threw the first pitch at the Round Rock Express game on May 27 to highlight Goodwill Central Texas’ program that provides for Veterans, and is supported by a grant from the Texas Veterans Commission. 
 
After his military service, he ran into some financial difficulties while looking for employment. Goodwill Central Texas was able to help York overcome these hard times, providing him emergency financial assistance. At one point, York was living in his car, but after receiving assistance, he now manages a team of regional custodians.

VA to conduct nationwide series of events to celebrate Women Veterans
 
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will conduct a series of one-day events to raise awareness and celebrate the stories of women Veterans. The events, to be held in five locations across the country, will provide an overview of services and benefits available to women Veterans. Experts will be available to answer Veterans’ questions, and exhibitors will share information on their many resources.
 
“We have found that our women Veterans often put the needs of others’ first,” said Elisa Basnight, Director of VA’s Center for Women Veterans (CWV). “We encourage them to make themselves a priority, to learn about the benefits and services which they’ve earned through their dedicated service. We are bringing our experts to them, where they are.” 
 
The scheduled events and local activities are part of a new national VA campaign, Women Veterans: Celebrating Our Stories of Service, which launched in late March 2015. The vision for the national VA campaign was born out of the realization that when our women Veterans from all eras and generations surrender the uniform, they retain the intangible—that combination of resolute resilience and the unbeatable skills they will incorporate into their reintegration and readjustment process. 
 
There is currently an event scheduled in Houston on August 7.
