CAVSA is proud to announce the 2018 State of the Veteran Community Report. In late 2017, CAVSA was awarded a three year grant by the Mental Health Services Oversight & Accountability Commission (MHSOAC). One of the main deliverables for the grant was to research and report on the state of the veteran community in California. Kathleen West, DrPH, was contracted to spearhead this project. West worked diligently with CAVSA members and others in the veteran and mental health communities to put together this comprehensive report. CAVSA and its member agencies will focus on the recommendations in this report in the coming year. This report will serve as a foundation for future annual reports written by CAVSA and presented to the MHSOAC over the term of the awarded grant.
