NH seeks to boost veterans' access to health care

The Associated Press

CONCORD — New Hampshire's Department of Health and Human Services is launching several new initiatives to help New Hampshire veterans, service members and their families receive medical and mental health treatment.

Commissioner Nick Toumpas will be joined by Department of Veterans Affairs officials, N.H. National Guard leaders and others from the civilian sector to describe the programs on Wednesday.

The initiatives include a statewide campaign to encourage health care providers, social service organizations and others to ask patients and clients if they had served in the military. A second program will train health care providers and others in military culture to ensure that providers understand veterans and know where to refer them.
