Council mission

The Knoxville Regional Veterans Mental Health Council seeks to be a “bridge” between veterans receiving healthcare services and their families; VA medical and mental health professionals; veterans support organizations; and the community. Our goal is to ensure better access to information and services, and to identify and advocate for needed changes. Through improved communication and better understanding, veterans challenged by mental health issues may then pursue treatment without fear of stigma.

Our Council is Chaired by Veterans and is endorsed but not a part of the Department of Veterans Affairs.

LPG mission

Our legacy, as Veterans, is to continue to support each other as we did when we were active duty.  We watched each others backs and our mission is to continue that tradition.  Regardless of our generation or war, we share the bond that comes with military service.  We do not judge each other.  We support each other now with the same intensity we did in service.  Our experiences during our military service provides us with unique strengths and capabilities; they allow one to see opportunities, hope and solutions rather than just problems and hopelessness.  Join with us in helping other Veterans recover and grow from those painful memories, depression, family issues, and dependencies that have controlled our lives and ruined many dreams and goals.

vet to vet tn mission
Our goal is to be able to provide a safe haven to any Veteran within our area of service.  Vet to Vet TN gives the veteran a sense of worth that allows them to support and promote their own recovery.  By being patients and supporters and through shared experiences and peer to peer support, the veteran can gain strength, courage, and ownership when it comes to advocating their recovery.

What started five years ago as a city-based organization has now grown and expanded its programs to over 18 East Tennessee counties. We are still a totally volunteer group with no paid staff and only having donated meeting and office space. Our officers generally pay for their own training or participate in community-based grant funded training programs.
