Help for Veterans

Veterans have unique needs—and unique options—when it comes to care for PTSD and other mental health conditions. These resources will help you find treatment within VA and understand the benefits and claims process.

Please also see Get Help for information on choosing a therapist, types of providers who deliver mental health care, and getting help in a crisis.

  • 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.
  • 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.
