Welcomes New Military Veteran Program Coordinator
Hamilton Center, Inc. has recently achieved the Behavioral Health Center Three Star Designation from Star Behavioral Health Providers. This distinction recognizes the organization’s service and commitment to service members, veterans, and their family members across the state of Indiana. Star Behavioral Health Providers ensures that veterans and their families are able to seek help from qualified professionals who are trained in military-specific subjects and can address the special challenges they face.
This designation, coupled with the hiring of Steven Neice, Military Veteran Program (MVP) Coordinator, has positioned Hamilton Center to provide our community’s services members, veterans, and their families with exceptional care, comprehensive resources, and needed support.
Hamilton Center’s MVP program appreciates the dedication and sacrifice required of our current military and our veteran families. Whether a veteran has recently returned or has been home for years, returning service members frequently suffer in silence and are reluctant to reach out for help. Family members can be a valuable resource for providing front line support to their loved one, however, they often need guidance and education to assist in coping with the changes in their family relationships.
“As a veteran, I am looking forward to working with and supporting fellow veterans and their families,” said Mr. Neice. “They have dedicated much of their lives in service to us, now it’s time we serve them, and serve them well.”
Mr. Neice is a disabled combat veteran with 12 years of military service including serving in the Persian Gulf War. He brings to Hamilton Center his extensive knowledge of military life and service as well as 15 years of experience working for the Indiana Department of Corrections.
Hamilton Center, Inc. is a regional health system in Central and West Central Indiana with corporate offices located in Terre Haute, Ind. Services are provided to children, youth, and adults, with specialized programs for expectant mothers, infants, and people who may be struggling with stress, life changes, or relationship issues, as well as more serious problems such as depression, anxiety disorders, and serious mental illnesses.
