    "I really just needed to talk to somebody."

Vet Centers provide community-based counseling, outreach, and referral services to eligible Veterans who served in any combat zone or area of hostility, experienced military sexual trauma, served as part of a mortuary affairs or drone crew, and their families. Services include counseling for transitioning and readjustment, military sexual trauma, and issues related to marriage, family, and bereavement. Referrals to VA mental health care, employment, education, and other services and benefits are also provided.

More than 300 Vet Centers are located throughout the United States. Veterans living in rural areas may also access these services through Mobile Vet Centers (MVCs), which travel from county to county to reach as many Veteran as possible.

Learn more about Vet Centers and MVCs or find one near you for fast access to quality VA care.

There is no requirement to apply for VA Health Care or Benefits prior to receiving Vet Center services. Eligible Veterans can just visit one of our locations. To find a location near you go here.
