A grant-funded community wellness collaborative 
serving Veterans and their families.

Welcome to Next Chapter

The transition from military service can be difficult for any Veteran or Veteran family member. And, whether that transition occurred last week, 10 years ago, or 60 years ago, the challenges remain the same.

At Next Chapter, Veteran leaders, healthcare professionals, and community partners join in a collaborative team initiative to deliver the best support for the variety of challenges Veterans and their families face as they write their next chapter.


How do I make an appointment?

Veterans and their family members can make an appointment through the program website at NEXTCHAPTERCO.ORG or by calling 1-888-719-VETS.

Is there a fee?

We’re happy to assist with the challenges of navigating your ongoing transition from military service, all at no out-of-pocket cost to you.

Am I eligible for services?

Next Chapter serves Veterans and their families. We welcome any Veteran who has served in any branch of the military at any time. Family is self-defined by the Veteran. Your family is our family.

Why Next Chapter?

In a Veteran’s life, each new day presents an opportunity to write the story of their journey. The next chapter in a life story can be one full of hope, health, opportunity, and fulfillment.

The Colorado Behavioral Health Administration, UCHealth and Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center have launched a grant-funded Veteran suicide-prevention program in El Paso County that can serve up to 700 Veterans and their family members each year.
