Western Wisconsin veterans to get improved mental health services

Minneapolis VA
Minneapolis VA

MINNEAPOLIS (WTAQ) - At least some mental health services will be improved at Veterans’ Administration clinics in western Wisconsin.

President Obama recently ordered the VA in Minneapolis to hire 24 new mental health professionals. Now, we’re learning that they’ll work at rural clinics which are overseen by the Minneapolis VA in rural Minnesota and the western part of Wisconsin.

The VA’s Ralph Heussner says those seeking services range from World War II veterans to those who recently came home from Iraq and Afghanistan. He says that in addition to combat issues, the vets may need help with financial hardships and relationship problems.
