Resources for MST
During SAAM and year-round, VA works to raise awareness of its resources for survivors of military sexual trauma (MST). VA believes in MST survivors, and we believe there are many paths to healing.
Transitioning From Service
Regardless of where you served, how long you served, your discharge status, or your service branch, VA is here for you.
Suicide Prevention Grant Applications Now Available
The new Staff Sergeant Parker Gordon Fox Suicide Prevention Grant Program (SSG Fox SPGP) will enable VA to provide resources toward community-based suicide prevention efforts to meet the needs of Veterans and their families through outreach, suicide prevention services, and connection to VA and community resources. The application is now available on the website along with additional information.
Learn About Anxiety and Treatment Options
It is natural to feel worried or anxious from time to time about various things, like a work presentation or your to-do list. But when persistent worries start affecting your activities, relationships, sleep, or work, it may be time to do something about anxiety.
Evidence-Based Therapy From VA Can Help
Evidence-based therapies (EBTs) have been shown to treat a variety of mental health conditions and improve overall well-being. These treatments are tailored to each Veteran’s needs, priorities, values, preferences, and goals for therapy. EBTs often work quickly and effectively, sometimes within a few weeks or months, depending on the nature or severity of your symptoms. Work with your VA provider to choose the treatment options that work best for you.

But in the court system, he found treatment for substance use disorder and navigated a new path.
