JCMH introduces program to help local veterans, military families was created by ClearCreekCourant
When veterans and their families are looking for professional mental health resources, it’s a great benefit to be able to talk to a fellow veteran.
That’s the principle behind Jefferson Center for Mental Health’s program, which serves veterans, active military and their families, that was recently introduced at its Idaho Springs location.
The program has been available at other JCMH locations for more than a decade, but the organization added this program in July to its Idaho Springs location. Rachel Firneno, the program’s clinician, works in Idaho Springs twice a month, but that will be evaluated with the program’s growth.
According to Firneno and Heather Trish, director of culturally relevant and trauma informed services, the program offers one-on-one, couples or family counseling sessions for veterans and military personnel who may be experiencing reintegration challenges, PTSD, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, grief and other things unique to their experiences.
