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.

The Bush Institute's Veteran Wellness Alliance is an innovative alliance that connects high-quality care providers and veteran peer networks to empower veterans to seek treatment.

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

Connect to Care

Veterans and servicemembers experiencing difficulties in daily life or in distress can reach out to Check-In and trust that an advocate will find a certified professional who can help.

Connect Yourself or a Loved One to Care

Asking for help with an issue of mental or brain health can be hard. And getting that help — in a system choked by red tape and bureaucracy — can be even harder.

That’s why the Veteran Wellness Alliance built Check-In: a user-friendly tool designed to connect veterans with high-quality, compassionate care for mental and brain health.

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

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.

Defining High-quAlity 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.
