In Georgia (United States), health care can be a considerable distance from where you live. There are only three VA Medical Centers in Georgia and the distance to a Community Outpatient Clinic can still be 1 to 2 hours away. Georgia is a rural state, for the most part, and health care options are not as plentiful as we’d like. Although the VA may have options for tele-health (including tele-mental health) and some offer the use of community options through the Choice program, it still may not be enough for you where you live. With that being said, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has support groups available throughout Georgia as well as online supports (including free trainings). One of our goals for the future (Billy Ray and Leila Diane Webb’s) is to complete one of the NAMI trainings in order to conduct community support groups for Veterans, Service Members, and their Families. In the mean time, take a few minutes and explore what this Nationwide organization has to offer. You may find the supplemental support you need close to where you live.
