Veteran Mental Health Benefits:
To promote community collaboration, each VA facility has identified a Community Mental Health (MH) Point of Contact (POC).

Please use this locator to identify your Community MH POC at a VA medical facility in your state.
Each VA medical center has mental health specialists. Use the facility locator to find the medical center nearest you.
