Outreach center created to aid veterans and families

Published on July 15th, 2015

The Defense Department has established an outreach center for service members, veterans and families to get information on psychological health issues and traumatic brain injury.

Staffed by behavioral health consultants and nurses, the outreach center will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to a Defense Department news release.

“The center can deal with everything from routine requests for information about psychological health and traumatic brain injury, to questions about symptoms a caller is having, to helping a caller find appropriate health care resources,” the news release said.

Those interested in reaching the center can call (866) 966-1020 or send an e-mail to: [email protected]

People with no connection to the military are also welcome to contact the outreach center, said Brig. Gen. Lori Sutton, director of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury.

“We’ll talk with anyone who calls us,” Sutton said.

The center has 21 consultants to answer calls, she said. All calls are confidential.
