Mental Health Services for War Veterans in Sterling, VA: Get the Support You Need

At MBC, veterans are part of their own treatment team and work with providers to set recovery goals, develop treatment plans, set benchmarks, and monitor progress. The VA is deploying mobile medical units across the country to provide medical care and support to homeless and at-risk veterans. The BeThere peer assistance program, in partnership with Military OneSource, offers support to service members (including National Guard soldiers and reservists), their families, and transitioning veterans up to 365 days after their separation or retirement. To improve veterans' access to care, the VA is adding more rural and mobile clinics and collaborating with healthcare providers in smaller communities.

Eligible American Indian and Alaska Native veterans are no longer required to make co-payments for the medical care and urgent care they receive through the VA. VA is committed to supporting the health of the country's veterans and their families.
