For Veterans & Families

Project Camo increases the resiliency of Veterans and their family members in Denton County. People who go through this course will be better prepared with knowledge of the many resources available in our community.

Our program provides this benefit through:

  • Military Mental Health First Aid
  • Raising awareness of locally available resources
  • Increasing Veteran employability on the civilian job market
  • Increasing access to Veterans benefits, peer support, educational opportunities, and more
  • Eligibility for Veteran-specific emergency financial assistance

For Community Organizations

Project Camo also helps local service providers gain the military cultural competency they can use to better serve needs that are often unique to Veterans and their families. We teach Military Mental Health First Aid, a specialized version of the National Council for Behavioral Health's Mental Health First Aid program.

Through Mental Health First Aid, anyone can help a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just like responding to a physical injury, first aid is given until appropriate treatment and support are received or until the crisis resolves.

Mental Health First Aid will contribute to the reduction of stigmatization of mental health, increase knowledge pertaining to response to a mental health crisis, and increase self-efficacy of trainees.
