New Arizona Combat Reintegration Help Centers Seek Volunteers

From the Arizona Republic:

There will soon be two Veterans Readjustment Centers in the Valley. These facilities help retuning veterans who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. They also help the families and provide bereavement counseling.

As part of the Carl T. Hayden Veterans Affairs Hospital, these centers also need need volunteers. The first has been open for some time at 77 E. Weldon Ave., Suite 100, in Phoenix. The second will open Aug. 1 at 1303 S. Longmore, Suite 5, in Mesa. The public is invited to the center's grand opening at 10 a.m.

Besides volunteers, items to furnish and decorate the new office are needed. For information on the Mesa center call Darlene Tryon at (480) 610-6727 or e-mail darlene.Tryon@va.gov. To reach the Phoenix center, call (602) 640-2981.

While visiting the Phoenix area, I learned of the complimentary retreat programs offered to returning veterans by the Merritt Center in Payson, Arizona. I even got to meet Betty Merritt herself at my stop at Changing Hands Books in Tempe. A great honor...

A recent post introduced you briefly to her programs; look for the latest offerings in our events listing or learn more on Merritt's retreats at their Welcome Home Program for Returning Combat Veterans page.

In addition, another special guest that thrilled me by his presence was Dr. David B. Monier-Williams, a psychotherapist, bio-energetist and spiritual counselor who sprang to action after reading an article (imagine that...) to offer complimentary counseling services to area female veterans.

Kudos to Arizona for these great resources!
