Mental Health Support

Professional help for Student Veterans

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.jpg 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. Make the Connection is also on YouTube and Facebook, where you can join the ongoing conversation about these important topics.
