As a Veteran, you have unique options for PTSD treatment and other mental health needs. Learn about treatment programs in VA, Vet Centers and VA benefits and claims.

  • PTSD Treatment Programs
    All Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers provide PTSD treatment, and many locations around the county offer specialized PTSD programs.
  • Care for Women Veterans
    Many VA Medical Centers offer mental health programs specifically for women Veterans. Learn about these services and the role of the Women Veterans Program Manager, the advocate for women's care at every Medical Center.
  • Vet Centers
    Many Veterans and their families use Vet Centers, often staffed by Veterans, for support. These community-based centers focus on counseling and services to help with the transition from military to civilian life or after military trauma. Learn more about Vet Center programs and ways to connect.
  • VA Benefits and Claims
    The claims process can be complicated, but don't let that stop you from applying for the VA benefits you may be entitled to. There are Department of Veterans Affairs, nonprofits, and state agencies that can help.
