VA uses Mobile Outreach Teams as a way to increase access to counseling services for Veterans and their families in rural and underserved communities across the country. If you are a Veteran or active duty servicemember who has served in a combat zone in World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, Persian Gulf, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq or Afghanistan, you may be eligible for free counseling. If you find yourself to be easily angered or startled, have lost interest in activities you used to enjoy, find yourself re-experiencing traumatic events, or avoiding things that remind you of those events, having difficulty in concentration or memory, or feel that you are emotionally numb towards others, please come and talk to a counselor to determine if you could benefit from counseling. VA benefits and referrals are available to all qualifying Veterans regardless of combat service status.
VA has 300 Vet Centers serving communities across the country, offering individual and group counseling for Veterans and their families, family counseling for military related issues, bereavement counseling for families who experience an active duty death, military sexual trauma counseling and referral, outreach and education, VA benefits explanation and referral, and screening and referral for medical issues including traumatic brain injury and depression.
