SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - The Cheyenne Veterans Affairs Medical Center will continue to send some patients to the Sheridan VA even when a new mental health program is opened in Cheyenne.

The new program in Cheyenne will provide inpatient care for problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and substance abuse.

Cheyenne currently provides outpatient mental health care.

Cheyenne VA spokesman Sam House says its new program will help individuals with less severe mental health problems stay closer to their southern Wyoming homes.

House told The Sheridan Press (https://bit.ly/1Q3wwwZ) that Cheyenne will still send the more severe cases to Sheridan or elsewhere.

Sheridan is a top referral site for veterans’ mental health care in the region and serves patients from across the country.
