The Lake County Health Department has been awarded $734,500 per year for five years in support of the collaborative Lake-McHenry Veteran's and Family Strategic Initiative. This new program is designed to transform community mental health systems to provide better care for veterans and their families who are experiencing trauma and/or adjustment issues related to veterans returning home. This especially for those veterans involved with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but any veteran, guardsman or reservist, or their families in need, will be served.
