The Office of Veteran Student Services in collaboration with
the University of Colorado Denver Counseling Center offers mental health
services specific to veterans and military families. Therapeutic services are
available for veterans and their dependents as the family navigates life after
the military. To more fully support the unique issues faced by military members
transitioning back to the civilian world, the University has a mental health
clinician dedicated specifically to serving CU Denver Veterans. This clinician
has direct experience and knowledge of the military and specializes in issues
related to deployment, military service, combat trauma and transitioning. Services
include traditional individual, couple, family and/or group therapy as well as Animal-Assisted
Therapy using a service dog trained canine. The University of Colorado Denver
strives to give the entire military family the support they have earned.

MakeTheConnection.net features hundreds of video
testimonials of Veterans telling their stories of reaching out and finding the
tools they need to deal with mental health challenges and everyday stressors in
civilian life, including things like the process of transitioning from Service
member to student. The website, created by the U.S. Department of Veterans
Affairs, is interactive and anonymous—a place where Veterans and their loved
ones can find information, insight, and access to the support they have earned.
the Connection is also on YouTube and Facebook, where you can join the ongoing
conversation about these important topics.
