New York State Chapter

Act Now for the Veterans Mental Health Training Initiative!
As the Governor and Legislature work to reach agreement on a budget for FY 2025, the National Association of Social Workers – New York State, New York State Psychiatric Association, and Medical Society of the State of New York strongly urge funding to be included for the Veterans Mental Health Training Initiative (VMHTI). The NYS Budget has provided funding for the VMHTI since 2008. The VMHTI is a lifesaving intervention for veterans in New York.  Community mental healthcare providers and primary care healthcare providers MUST be trained on military culture and veteran-specific mental health issues.  Legislators in New York must do everything possible to provide wrap-around care for our veterans.  Funding the VMHTI is a commitment to this level of care.
