The purpose of the VERG is to enhance the work environment at Berkeley Lab for veteran employees and job seekers.  Our goal is to promote an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere, identify and address emerging issues or challenges such as veteran recruitment and retention, increase the visibility and value of veterans’ skills in the workplace among management and staff, provide guidance for institutional processes and programs, enhance policies of non-discrimination, and recognize achievements impacting our community.  The group is open to all employees, including veterans and civilians.  VERG has recently updated our self-identification campaign for veterans at the Lab to align with UC Path.  We encourage you to self identify.

Mental Health Support
If you're a Veteran in crisis or concerned about one, connect with a qualified Veterans Crisis Line responder for confidential help. Many of them are Veterans themselves. This service is private, free, and available 24/7. 

For additional resources, take a look at the VA suicide prevention website.
