Mental illness is among the many burdens that challenge a large number of veterans. 30% of returning veterans suffer from a mental health or cognitive condition (RAND Center for Military Health Policy Research, Invisible Wounds of War, 2008). By providing legal assistance to these veterans, MHAS helps returning service members successfully transition to civilian life.
With the support of a Skadden Fellowship, MHAS has formed the Behavioral Health Legal Partnership for Veterans project (BeHeLP-Vets) to provide legal assistance to veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Skadden Fellow and MHAS Staff Attorney Naomi Sultan works with Operation Healthy Homecoming, a project of Mental Health America of Los Angeles, to resolve veterans' legal issues in an effort to improve mental health outcomes and housing stability.
