This video reflects the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Administration (BHDDA) Veteran Navigator Project review and highlights for fiscal year 2020 (October 1, 2019-September 30, 2020). Brian Webb, BHDDA Veteran Liaison, and some of the Pre-Paid Inpatient Health Plan (PIHP) and Community Mental Health Service Provider (CMHSP) Veteran Navigators explain the Walking With Warriors and Women Veteran Strong projects, drive-through COVID-19 Care Package events, and the Heroes Haven organization, all of which have provided support to Michigan Veterans and families members through the past year. The video was made as an alternative to the annual BHDDA Veterans Summit, which was cancelled in November 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. The primary target audience for this video are PIHPs, CMHSPs, the publicly funded behavioral health provider network, key stakeholders and colleagues, and Michigan Veterans, Military Members and their families.
