October 18-24, 2020 is National Compensated Work Therapy (CWT) Vocational Rehabilitation Recognition Week.

Learn more at https://www.va.gov/health/cwt

CWT provides vocational rehabilitation services to over 63,000 Veterans each year. Many Veterans living with mental illness or physical impairment face significant barriers to employment. Supporting Veterans’ efforts to gain meaningful work benefits Veterans, our communities and our nation.

CWT services are recovery-oriented and focused on each Veteran’s strengths, skills, abilities, needs, goals, and preferences. CWT services include building job skills, assistance to secure and maintain meaningful employment regardless of the Veterans’ disability, diagnosis, symptoms, work history, legal background, or cognitive impairment. Veterans are placed in work assignments or competitive employment within VA and throughout the community with partnerships between CWT teams and employers.

We acknowledge the value that meaningful work adds to our individual lives and the strength of our great nation. We recognize the importance of meaningful work as a suicide prevention factor, and say thank you to our 1,000+ CWT vocational rehabilitation counselors, managers and peer support specialists nationwide and business partners for putting Veterans on the road to work. We acknowledge all their efforts each week and utilize this week to affirm, recovery is working!
