West Texas Counseling and Guidance

Service Area: West Texas

The two main offices of West Texas Counseling & Guidance (WTCG) are located in areas specifically identified as one of the 15 communities cited in BWF’s research paper, “Veterans and COVID-19: Projecting the Economic, Social, and Mental Health Needs of America’s Veterans,” as facing significant economic impact due to the pandemic. COVID-19 is also predicted to produce a rise in suicide, substance use, and mental health concerns as a result of the decreasing economy and increased social isolation. Because of the outbreak, WTCG is providing all counseling, support groups, and case management services online. With this BWF grant WTCG will provide virtual evidence-based therapy to improve mental health outcomes through 243 sessions for approximately 60 individuals who are either post-9/11 veterans or family members of post-9/11 veterans
