    Consumer/Family Satisfaction Team, Mental Health AmericaThe Consumer and Family Satisfaction Team (CFST) represents an innovative approach to gathering data by organizing teams of consumers and family members to affirm satisfactory services, identify gaps or trends in service provision, support providers in improving existing services, and identify consumer needs. This program is an essential element of a recovery-oriented mental health system in that it serves as a mechanism for the consumer voice to be heard. Consumer feedback is gathered through confidential face-to-face surveys and questionnaires, as well as focus groups. All survey tools are "service specific" and can be linked to a provider agency. As feedback is gathered, reports are generated and sent to the provider and its funding source. After a report is finalized, CFST initiates an accountability meeting. This follow-up process allows CFST to highlight positive outcomes from surveys, as well as discuss with the provider recommendations for quality improvement. Providers are expected to notify the Team in writing of any changes they implement based upon the feedback in their report.

    Military Officers Association of AmericaMOAA is the nation's largest and most influential association of military officers. It is an independent, nonprofit, politically nonpartisan organization. The association plays an active role in military personnel matters and especially proposed legislation affecting the career force, the retired community, and veterans of the uniformed services. MOAA's overarching goals are captured in its resolutions, which reflect the views of the entire membership. The membership provides input and votes on resolutions every two years (on even years). While MOAA is permitted by law to lobby - and does so actively - its status as a tax-exempt veterans organization precludes it from participating in political activities, which are defined as intervening directly or indirectly in any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. Stated briefly, the association may advocate issues, but it may not advocate the election or defeat of particular candidates or political parties.

Survivors and Dependent Assistance: The Dependents' Educational Assistance (DEA) program offers education and training opportunities to eligible dependents of Veterans who are permanently and totally disabled due to a service-related condition or of Veterans who died while on active duty or as a result of a service-related condition. Tuition Assistance Top Up: Using Top-Up benefits may be an option if you plan to use tuition assistance (TA) to complete a degree program while on active duty, and don't plan to continue your education after service. Top-up can also be helpful for just taking a few courses with TA while on active duty. Then you can save most of your GI Bill benefits for after service to complete your education program.
