V.A. announces mental health town hall in Albany

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Veterans will have an opportunity to give feedback on what's working and what's not when it comes to their mental health care.

The first Mental Health Town Hall will be Thursday in Albany at American Legion Post 30 on Gillionville Road.

Leaders of the region's mental health services want to hear directly from veterans and their families about their care, and make suggestions for improvement.

"We want to hear from the community members, more importantly, this time around," said Mental Health Director Dr. Matthew Geyer of the Carl Vinson V. A.

The phone number is 800-595-5229 ext. 4150.

Dr. Geyer says folks can also learn more about the new V.A. Mental Health clinic that's set to open this summer in Tifton.     The event is from 2:00 to 3:30 Thursday.
