Free counseling services for veterans and their families
Military life is challenging, due to deployments, frequent relocations and temporary duty assignments that take service members away from home and their families.
These challenges impact not only service members but also their spouses and children in a variety of ways, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance use disorders and family and relationship problems. And many of these effects can last after leaving the military.
We can help
Our providers are specifically trained in military culture, so they know their clients’ struggles in that respect. In addition, our providers are trained in the evidence-based practices that are proven to be effective in the treatment of many mental health problems.
Up to 12 free sessions
Veterans and family members who live in Tennessee, Illinois or in the metro St. Louis area can see one of our specialized counselors at no cost. Each person can get up to 12 visits with us completely free.
