This site features key tools to support the mental health services you provide to Veterans. You can find information on connecting with VA, understanding military culture and experience, as well as tools for working with a variety of mental health conditions (found under Mental Health and Wellness).
Has Your Client Served in the Military?
You may be surprised to hear that military background is not always assessed by clinicians or spontaneously shared by Veteran clients.
Assessing Veteran status is not something that is commonly included in traditional behavioral health screenings. Asking if the individual in your office has served (or is currently serving) in the military is simple, quick and can have important implications for available benefits and care.
