I don't believe there are mental health services at the clinics, at least not the one in Ft. Collins. I am a vet and have been told I must travel to Cheyenne for mental health services. I moved from Houston to Ft. Collins, temporary only, and visited the local clinic.

I'd also like to add the service in Ft. Collins was deplorable the second day I was there. At 9 AM there were maybe 15 vets outside, in the hot sun, some with walkers and crutches, no benches. I asked one vet who walked by my car to ask when they'd open. He said they were open, at 7:45 AM but were having a staff meeting and wouldn't let anyone in!

Maybe everyone on staff at a VA facility MUST be a veteran. No career civilians except medical staff?
