Bridget & Kathleen are both social workers with the SFVA Health Care System’s Student Veterans Health Program, usually located in person at CCSF, but now available remotely via work cell to speak over the phone or via VA video connect for tele-social work & tele-mental health.
For veterans who are not yet enrolled in VA health care, now would be an excellent time to do so. We are happy to answer any question, provide support and help veterans navigate VA health care enrollment & other services and resources now moving remote across schools, health care systems & other community resources.
