Buddy-to-Buddy Volunteer Veteran Program

Buddy-to-Buddy is a peer-to-peer outreach program that trains veterans to provide peer support and linkage to needed resources for Michigan Post-9/11 service members and veterans. Buddy-to-Buddy is one of the M-SPAN suite of military mental health programs at the University of Michigan.  M-SPAN programs are part of the Welcome Back Veterans initiative, a collaboration between Major League Baseball and the McCormick Foundation.  Welcome Back Veterans is committed to creating a national network of university-based medical Centers of Excellence to address the mental health needs of our veterans and their families.
