Knoxville Regional Veterans Mental Health Council
Legacy Peer Support Group (LPG)

Vet to Vet Tennessee


Council Mission

The mission of the Council is to be a "bridge" between Veterans receiving medical & mental health services and their families, the VA Medical & Mental Health professionals and the community support or Veterans service organizations. This bridge allows information and services to flow both ways to develop methods of measuring Veteran's satisfaction and advocate needed changes. Most importantly, to improve the communication and understanding between Veterans and the Mental Health staff in reducing the stigma associated with seeking and using mental health services.

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

All council members are non-paid volunteers.  Donations are used for the purchase and distribution of educational materials, supplies, transportation assistance, and other emergency needs for veterans and/or their families.  The council and its committees operate in accordance with non-profit organization guidelines.

Joseph Lee Tucker, a resident of Clinton, went home to his Heavenly Father, November 22, 2014, surrounded by his loving wife, children and grandchildren.  JL served as Vice President of Vet to Vet Tennessee and was a Legacy Peer Support Group leader.
