Mobile Vet Centers offer readjustment counseling services to veterans and service members who have served in a warzone or area of hostility and their families. Vet Centers extend services to family members who have experienced an active duty death (bereavement counseling) and veterans of any era who have experienced any form of military sexual trauma or harassment. These veterans are not required to have served in a war zone.

The services are available at no charge and veterans do not need to be enrolled with VA to use the Vet Centers.

Services offered include:

  • Individual, group, and family readjustment counseling to veterans and their families in making a successful transition from combat to civilian life.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment and help with other related problems that affect functioning within the family, work, school or other areas of everyday life.
  • Military sexual trauma counseling for veterans of both genders, regardless of combat service.

Active duty service members who served in a combat or war zone are also eligible to receive counseling at the Memphis Vet Center.
