(Continued)

Tsongas said she would be willing to work with veterans groups to expand mental health services in the Lawrence area.

Additionally, state Rep. Linda Dean Campbell, D-Methuen, who served in the Army, and state Sen. Barry Finegold, D-Andover, said they would help lobby the VA to assign some of the new mental health professionals assigned to Lawrence. Both said they recognized the need for a center in the Lawrence and Methuen area.

“The increase in counselors available is very welcome news,” Campbell said. “I think we can certainly expect that both Haverhill and probably Lowell will be very eligible for some increased personnel based on caseload levels.”

Silva and Debrocke said they are willing to provide DAV space at East Haverhill and Prospect streets in Lawrence for to house a Vet Center with several counselors and a meeting room.
