Our Veteran Peers partner with individuals to provide them with the tools needed to successfully integrate back into their community and transition from their military life to civilian life again. We work with individuals in supporting them with the best care options their community has to offer, and empower them to utilize identified resources effectively for their overall wellness.
Available at all locations in Bastrop, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Lee, and Williamson Counties.
For individuals who recently experienced a behavioral health crisis and identified themselves as a veteran or a family member of a veteran, our team will reach out to the individual for a follow up after the crisis event. Within the follow-up, our team will work with the individual to find resources within their communities for the services that will best fit their needs.
Bluebonnet Trails’ Peer Volunteers go throughout our communities we serve to reach out to veterans within the community. Our Peer Volunteers introduce individuals to services available within their community that will assist with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, integration back into their community from military life to civilian life, how one can be affected by substance use, and more. We work with veterans to empower them with resources that will ensure a successful welcome back into their hometown.
Within our Veteran’s Program, we offer groups for veterans to come together and learn how to manage the traumas they have once faced. We work with individuals on safe coping skills and how to use the resources available for them. Our curriculum is based on the evidence-based practice of Seeking Safety. Our team is trained in this curriculum through the consulting team of Lisa Najavits, the author of the Seeking Safety curriculum.

Veteran Sponsorship Initiative
Transitioning out of the military can be a challenging experience associated with stressors, decreased social connections, and increased risk for mental health problems. The Veteran Sponsorship Initiative (VSI) is an evidence-based program designed to reduce these stressors by matching transitioning service members with a community-based sponsor who helps them rejoin their civilian communities by assisting with housing, employment, educational opportunities, and access to mental health support.
