Vet Centers offer a wide range of psycho social services to Veterans and their families in the effort to make a successful transition from military to civilian life. They include:
Individual and group counseling for Veterans and their families
Family counseling
Bereavement counseling
Military sexual trauma
Outreach counseling and referral
Outreach and educational events
Substance abuse assessment & referral
Employment assessment & referral
VBA benefits explanation and referral
Screening & referral for medical issues including TBI, depression, etc.

Does VA have readjustment counseling for family members?
Family members of combat veterans have been eligible for Vet Center readjustment counseling services for military related issues since 1979.

Am I eligible for Vet Center readjustment counseling?
If you, or a family member, served in any combat zone and received a military campaign ribbon (Vietnam, Southwest Asia, OEF, OIF, etc.) then your family is eligible for Vet Center services.

Where is counseling offered?
A readjustment counselor is available for on-campus interviews, assessment, and counseling. Contact the Mesquite Vet Center at 972-288-8030 for information and or to schedule an appointment.
