From Combat to Classroom Understanding Student-Veterans and Servicemembers

Wahlen Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center, the Brain Injury Association of Utah and many state and community agencies and organizations, provides information about post-deployment issues, mental health and medical issues, tips for colleges and universities, and resources.
Considering Professional Help Web Course
This web-based program uses real experiences from Veterans. There are five common concerns that may stop a Veteran from getting help for their mental health. This tool helps the Veteran identify his/her concerns. It also provides new ways of thinking about them and shows the Veteran what to look for and where to find help.
The goal of the Vet Center program is to provide a broad range of counseling, outreach, and referral services to eligible Veterans in order to help them make a satisfying post-war readjustment to civilian life. Family members (from selected combat operations) are eligible for Vet Center services as well. Vet Centers also provide bereavement counseling services to surviving parents, spouses, children and siblings of Service Members who die of any cause while on active duty, including federally activated Reserve and National Guard personnel.
