Military Veteran Peer Network

Peer-to-Peer Support

The MVPN is made of TVC-Certified Peer Service Coordinators and their peer volunteers strategically placed within the local mental health authorities across Texas to create a statewide peer-to-peer network for any service member, veteran, or family member.

Through training, technical assistance, and certification to Local Mental Health Authority-based Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) Peer Service Coordinators (PSCs) and their Peers – we create a statewide network of military trauma-affected Veteran peer support.

The MVPN provides services including direct peer-to-peer support, training on suicide prevention and military cultural competency, coordination of mental health first aid, and warm-handoffs to local resources based on the individual needs of the veteran and family.
