U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Pilot Point, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at the new VA Denton Mental Health Annex on Friday.

Working alongside the Department of Veterans Affairs and United Way of Denton County, Burgess assisted with the opening of this new mental health clinic, which will help ensure that North Texas veterans can access care close to home.

“In Congress, it is both my privilege and my responsibility to support North Texas veterans,” Burgess said in a news release. “Quality health care — including mental health care — is imperative to our veterans’ well-being. It was my honor to assist in the opening of The Annex, and I am grateful that this clinic will expand the VA’s capacity to support our region’s growing veteran population.”

All North Texans are invited to join Burgess and the Department of Veterans Affairs for the event at the annex, 406 S. Carroll Blvd. Tours will begin at 7:30 a.m. The ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 8 a.m.
