Syracuse, NY- The Syracuse VA Medical Center will be hosting these two, separate but related, Summits from 9 AM to 4 PM on Thursday, August 4. The purpose of the Summits is to enhance the mental health and well-being of Veterans and their family members through increased collaboration between the VA and Cayuga County. Our goal is to engage in active dialogue on how we as a community can address the mental health and housing needs of Veterans and their families. Some 30-40 representatives from CNY organizations, working with the VA, are expected to engage in an active dialogue regarding ways they can provide services to area Veterans and their families.
Media are invited and encouraged to attend.
