5 Things Not To Say To A Veteran

“So, did you ever kill anyone?”  It is not a question you would ask a police officer, but it is one that many veterans get all the time.  Most people have good intentions, but that does not seem to be enough to guide people in what to say and what not to say to a returning veteran.  It has become commonplace to say, “Thank you for your service,” but then what?

Guide to VA Mental Health Services for Veterans and Families

In 2008, VA introduced a new mental health handbook that provides guidelines for VA hospitals and clinics across the US. The new handbook specifies exactly what mental health services VA hospitals and clinics are required to offer to Veterans and their families. The requirements differ depending on the size and type of VA hospital or clinic but apply across the entire VA system. This brochure is a shorter, simplified version of the handbook intended for the general public. If you are a Veteran, Veteran family member, member of a Veterans Service Organization, or member of another group interested in VA mental health care, you can use this handbook to learn what mental health services your local or regional VA health care facility has pledged to provide to Veterans.
