The Veterans Treatment Court is not in session; however, we are recruiting new Veteran Mentors. This opportunity is for Veterans only.
Veterans Helping Veterans – Join Seminole County Veteran’s Treatment Court’s Mentor Team
Many returning Veterans suffer from not only physical injuries but also the mental scars of war including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, traumatic brain injury, depression, and substance abuse. Many times these factors are the primary reason our Veterans become involved in the criminal justice system. Local Veterans have volunteered to help their peers through the Veterans’ Court process by becoming mentors.
The Seminole County Veterans Treatment Court Mentor Program provides peer-to-peer confidential support and assistance by Veterans to our criminal justice system-involved Veterans. Our mentors will help our Veterans readjust to civilian life, introduce them to various Veterans’ organizations, help them to connect with treatment providers, and assist them in navigating the VA system.
