America’s Heroes Group podcast, episode 395, focuses on peer support services and groups in the VA healthcare system. We are joined by Sonya Ebhotemen, who is a US Marine Corps Veteran and Lead Peer Specialist at Hines VA Medical Center working in patient experience.
“It’s kind of like the buddy system in the military,” said Ebhotemen. “We are able to get Veterans, who are new to the VA, to the right resources they need and also utilize our own recovery journey to help connect them to services in the VA or in communities of their choice.”
VA Hines Healthcare System’s mission is to offer options to timely, quality services for Veterans through care and respect for one’s physical, psychological, and spiritual health.
America’s Heroes Group’s mission is to honor and respect the relentless commitment, ultimate sacrifice, and unwavering dedication of our retired Veterans and Active Service members thereby empowering and transforming their lives as they age in place and reacclimate back into society through identifying and positioning local and national communities as military friendly.
