Veterans Looking for Support


No matter how you served or what you’ve experienced in military or civilian life, you may be facing challenges that affect your health, relationships, and life — but you don’t have to face them alone. VA is here to provide and connect you with resources and support to confront and manage any mental health challenge.

Take the First Step

Let others know how you feel and ask for support. Seeking information, advice, or options for tackling the challenges that affect your health, daily activities, or relationships can be a good first step. You may start with a family member or friend but also consider talking with:

  • Your doctor. Ask if your doctor has experience treating Veterans or can refer you to someone who does.
  • A mental health professional, such as a therapist.
  • Your local VA medical center or Vet Center. VA specializes in the care and treatment of Veterans. Locate VA resources near you.
