Whether you are just returning from combat or your deployment was years ago, your local Vet Center can guide you toward a successful readjustment.
Take Jeffrey, an Army Veteran, who faced financial and mental health challenges. His local Vet Center linked him with the resources he needed.
“You walk in the Vet Center. There’s going to be someone right there. They’re going to ask you what’s going on, and they’re going to help you out,” says Jeffrey.
Vet Centers provide a variety of counseling services for:
- Transitioning from military service and readjustment to civilian life
- Military sexual trauma
- Issues related to marriage, family and bereavement
Vet Center staff will help you learn about and access other VA benefits and services including health care, employment, and education.
Eligible individuals do not have to be enrolled in VA health care to receive Vet Center services. Vet Center Call Center counseling is also available 24/7 at 1-877-WAR-VETS (1-877-927-8387).
