Dispatch From the Front Lines: Mentor Roles and Boundaries

Volunteer veteran mentors have been described as the “secret sauce” of veterans treatment courts. They engage, encourage, and empower their fellow veterans to change their lives, ensuring that together we will leave no veteran behind. However, mentors must have a clear understanding of their role and responsibilities, and must establish and maintain appropriate boundaries to enable veteran participants to succeed in the program.
