"As the Local Recovery Coordinator in the Sheridan VA Healthcare system, I am committed to helping private-sector or community clinicians access training and information that might support provision of effective mental health care to Veterans in Wyoming, wherever they might receive it," Eric Crawford, Ph.D. and Local Recovery Coordinator Trainer at the Sheridan VAMC said. The live webcast is part of the effort to fulfill the August 2014 Presidental Executive Action for DoD and VA to disseminate military cultural competency training to 3,000 community providers as well as VA providers. It aims to provide a foundation to ensure that veterans and their family members receive military culturally competent care through VA and their community providers, including Veterans Choice providers.
