Where To Get Help

Veterans and their families may receive treatment for war zone related problems from a number of qualified and sympathetic sources:

It is important to shop around for the provider you feel is right for you, and most counselors will understand that you are searching for a fit that makes you feel comfortable.

Military One Source

Military One Source is the Defense Department’s primary behavioral health resource for service members and their families, and offers a very good starting point for veterans or members of the military who are seeking help. Go to www.militaryonesource.com for more information or call 1-800-342-9647 to speak with a representative about your problems.

Suicide Prevention Lifeline

If you are having feelings of suicide, think you are a possible threat to yourself, or are worried about a loved one, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline immediately for crisis intervention. Call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) then Press “1”.


The Mayo Clinic provides useful information about when to consider psychotherapy and for what conditions it may help.
