  Rocky Mountain Network - VISN 19 MIRECC

 

The mission of the VISN 19 MIRECC (Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center) is to study suicide with the goal of reducing suicidal ideation and behaviors in the Veteran population. Towards this end, the work of the VISN 19 MIRECC is focused on promising clinical interventions, as well as the cognitive and neurobiological underpinnings of suicidal thoughts and behaviors that may lead to innovative prevention strategies.

The vision of the VISN 19 MIRECC is: Veterans, their families, and the VHA will have increased information and options to make health decisions aimed at decreasing suicide risk.

Network for Veterans

Our goal as Networks for Veterans is to make the adjustment to civilian life easier for all veterans by providing them the tools to connect with family and their community, and to help combat unemployment through email, resumes, and online resources. We aim to do this by providing the technology and networking capability that connects them through use of this technology.

 


National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic

The National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic is a world-leader in adaptive winter sports instruction for U.S. military Veterans and active duty servicemen and women with disabilities.

We are committed to improving the quality of life for Veterans with disabilities. Participants will develop sports skills and take part in a variety of adaptive sports workshops. Clinic participation demonstrates that having a physical or visual disability is not an obstacle to an active rewarding life.

The five-day Clinic consists of downhill and cross-country ski lessons, a challenge race, adaptive sports workshops and educational classes, plus sponsored and self-directed alternate activities such as scuba diving, sled hockey, a climbing wall, snowmobiling and other activities. More than 200 certified ski instructors for the disabled, and several current and former members of the U.S. Disabled Ski Team, serve as ski instructors to meet the unique needs of the participants.

 


Mission Redefined — VA Adaptive Sports Program

Your courage, your determination and your drive all led you to serve America proudly. Those same characteristics will also lead to satisfaction and success in adaptive sports. Disabled Veterans of all ages and abilities report better health, new friendships and a better quality of life when participating in adaptive sports. Disabled Veterans who are physically active simply have more fun! To get started, take some time to review the many sports opportunities available to you by reaching out to your VA clinical team and checking out this website.
