Transitioning Service Member

Mental Health Resources for Transitioning Service Members

Regardless of where you served, how long you served, your discharge status, or your Service branch, we’re here for you. We know the first year of transition is critical for Service members and Veterans moving from the military to civilian life. To address these transition-related challenges, President Trump signed Executive Order 13822, “Supporting our Veterans During Their Transition from Uniformed Service to Civilian Life” on January 9, 2018.

As part of the Mental Health Executive Order, VA is providing seamless mental health resources to all eligible Service members and Veterans for at least one year after their discharge from military service. We are partnering with the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Veterans Service Organizations, Congress, and community organizations to make sure you have the right resources and the support you need, whenever and wherever you need it.

If you are a Veteran in crisis — or you’re concerned about one — free, confidential support is available 24/7. Call the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, send a text message to 838255, or chat online.
