Online Mental Health Screening
MVAA and Screening for Mental Health, a nonprofit organization providing innovative mental health and substance abuse resources, have created an online mental health screening tool. This program provides veterans with 24/7 access to anonymous online screenings for depression, bipolar, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, alcohol/substance abuse and eating disorders.

Veterans begin the screening by selecting a statement that best fits what they have been thinking or how they have been behaving recently. A brief series of questions follow. The survey ends with comprehensive explanations about moods and behaviors as well as available mental health care support and where to find nearby care.

Vet Centers
Vet Centers provide a broad range of counseling, outreach and referral services to combat veterans and their families; guiding them through many of the major lifestyle adjustments that occur when a veteran returns from combat. Services include individual and group counseling in areas such as post-traumatic stress, alcohol and drug assessment and suicide prevention referrals. All services are free and strictly confidential.

In addition, a 24-hour Vet Center call center is available that veterans and their families can call to talk about their military experience or other issues they are facing in their readjustment to civilian life. Staffed by combat veterans from several eras and family members of combat veterans, the call center can be reached by dialing 877-WAR-VETS (877-927-8387).
