CLM Awarded Grants to Support Services for Veterans, Military Members and Families
CLM has been awarded two grants designated to support the provision of mental health services for veterans, military members and their families. The grants were awarded by the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Charitable ServiceTrust in the amount of $20,000 and by the Walmart Foundation State Giving Program in the amount of $25,000.
CLM is committed to improving access and quality of behavioral health care for veterans, military members and their families. Through the Military Advantage Program, which is supported by these grants, CLM is able to provide an integrated, wrap-around approach and a scope of services that includes clinical mental health services, case management, supported employment and other supportive services.
According to Celia Felsenberg, CLM Director of Strategic Development, “We are proud to participate in the statewide Community Mental Health Center Military Liaison Initiative. As part of our commitment, we have established a military focused, multi-disciplinary treatment team and all members have completed Military Culture training and in some cases have military experience themselves. Additionally, we have adopted the “Ask the Question” campaign to actively identify service members and their families beginning with our intake process.”
