Leveraging Peers to Decrease Stigma and Increase Access to Mental Health Services for Veterans( Amend )

October 2017 - September 2018

We propose to develop a robust partnership between MDHHS and its statewide CMH network and the Buddy-to-Buddy program wherein Buddy-to-Buddy volunteers serve as Veteran Navigators to effectively triage veterans in need and refer eligible veterans to the appropriate service providers, both within and outside of the public health system. The goals of this proposal are to: (1) increase veteran access to CMH organizations throughout the state through targeted outreach, eligibility determination and warm hand offs, and (2) develop processes, systems and cross training that leverage resources and partnerships to maximize coordination and build a statewide model of care.
