Background:

Public Law 96-22 was signed on June 13, 1979 establishing the Vet Centers within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in response to Vietnam combat and era Veterans not accessing VA services at the same levels as Korean and World War II Veterans. Today, 300 Vet Centers and 80 Mobile Vet Centers provide community-based counseling for a wide range of social and psychological services, including confidential readjustment counseling, outreach and referral to eligible Veterans, active duty service members, including National Guard and Reserve components and their families. Individual, group, marriage and family counseling is offered in addition to referral and connection to other VA or community benefits and services at no cost. Vet Center counselors and outreach staff, many of whom are Veterans themselves, are experienced and prepared to discuss the tragedies of war, loss, grief and transition after trauma.
