Program funded: August 2014 – July 2017
Veterans make up the fastest-growing student population at Edmonds Community College, with enrollment having more than doubled from 2009 to 2013. Many veterans experience feelings of isolation and depression upon reintegration into civilian life. Couple that with enrolling in college, which can create a whole new set of challenges for veterans, like understanding transcripts, benefits and college systems. The Verdant Health Commissions support of this program will increase veterans access to mental health counseling and peer mentoring, serving an estimated 350 college students annually.
