Veteran Wellness Alliance

Get involved. Connect with fellow veterans. Or find the clinical care you need.



Connecting best-in-class health care providers and peer veteran networks.

For service members and veterans impacted by the invisible wounds of war (traumatic brain injury, post traumatic stress, etc.), accessing care for those injuries can be challenging. The Bush Institute's Veteran Wellness Alliance is an innovative alliance that connects high-quality care providers and veteran peer networks to empower seeking treatment for the invisible wounds.

With proper care, these wounds are treatable and service members and veterans can continue to thrive on and off the battlefield.

How It Works

Personal, individualized care is at the heart of our mission, and that’s why our best in class network tool is built around human connection. The Veteran Wellness Alliance is currently conducting a pilot program called Check In for the Texas, Colorado, and Florida areas.

If you or someone you know would like to speak with an advocate who has been specially trained in how to efficiently connect veterans with verified, high-quality care:

  • 1)
    Let the veteran you are seeking care for know that you would like to connect them to this resource.
  • 2)
    Provide us with basic contact information about yourself or the veteran and a general description of the need.
  • 3)
    Within 24-48 business hours, a Veteran Wellness Alliance veteran advocate will contact the veteran and begin their assessment to connect them to the appropriate care.

When you refer veterans to the Alliance, they will be able to speak with an advocate who has been specially trained in how to efficiently connect veterans with verified, high-quality care.

The Veteran Wellness Alliance, in partnership with Combined Arms, the Wounded Warrior Project, and Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families, created Check In.

For veterans in an immediate crisis, please call 911 or the Veteran Crisis Line (1-800-273-8255).

Defining High-qaulity care

The Veteran Wellness Alliance aims to improve access to high-quality care for post-9/11 veterans with PTS and TBI. To be successful in this mission, and to better support the broader veteran-serving community, the Veteran Wellness Alliance collaborated with RAND to create a shared definition of high-quality care for these conditions. Learn about this standard and next steps.
