VHA iEX Talks: Engaging the VSO and Veteran Non-profit Community in Improving VA Care

1 min read

The story of the Resource Acquisition Clinic (RAC) follows VA providers (Psychologists, Peer Supports, and Recreation Therapists) as they forge partnerships with grassroots VSOs to create a support pathway for Veterans to re-integrate into their communities. While many services and resources currently exist, they often operate as silos that Veterans are either unaware or uncertain of. The flexibility and supportive nature of the VA Peer Support role allows that gap to be filled while providing continuity of care through the phases of transition and recovery. The RAC empowers Veterans to build social support networks outside VA, learn about underutilized resources/benefits, reconnect with other Veterans, build mastery, develop new purpose, reduce isolation, pursue their goals, and identify and exceed their previous limitations. These far-reaching benefits amplify the effectiveness of other evidence-based practices helping to reduce suicidality, depression, and hopelessness, while increasing Veterans’ personal commitment to their care.
