VA and Military Sexual Trauma

Week of April 15, 2013

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, which provides VA an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to supporting veterans who have experienced Military Sexual Trauma (MST). MST can affect Veterans' physical and mental health for many years afterward. To assist in recovery, treatment for MST-related physical and mental health conditions is available at every VHA facility and provided to veterans free of charge, regardless of service-connection status. Veterans may be able to receive this free MST-related care, even if they are not eligible for other VA care. Every VHA facility has an MST Coordinator who serves as a point person for veterans and staff. For more information, contact your facility's MST Coordinator, or visit the VA's MST Resource webpage at www.mentalhealth.va.gov/msthome.asp.
