Maryland’s Commitment to Veterans is a Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) program devoted to total wellness for veterans and their families. Regional resource coordinators provide assistance to veterans and their families to support a healthy transition to civilian life. With support from the DHMH’s Behavioral Health Administration, they provide a solid connection to wellness services, with an emphasis on mental health and substance use disorder services.
Maryland’s Commitment to Veterans also has dedicated funds to provide for the coordination and facilitation of transportation for veterans to and from behavioral health appointments. Coordinators are available to answer questions, address concerns, or help with any obstacle a veteran and family might face.
Coordinators are Mental Health First Aid trained instructors. This program trains individuals working with veterans in the community on how to assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis.
