There are multiple sources of help for Veterans & Active Duty personnel. We link to just a few for your consideration.
Nearly 1 in 4 active duty members showed signs of a mental health condition, according to a 2014 study in JAMA Psychiatry. On this page we focus on questions that military personnel often ask, concerning treatment resources, disclosure and staying healthy during the transition to civilian life.
You can also learn about NAMI Homefront, a free, 6-session educational program for families, caregivers and friends of military service members and veterans with mental health conditions.

Assisted Living Benefits for Veterans Guide, is an online guide provided by the Assisted Living Research Center. In order to raise awareness and provide advocacy tools, our team of medical professionals created a comprehensive guide specifically for veterans living with disabilities to learn and understand their assisted living options. This guide breaks down the care options that are available, financial support to help pay for the care needed and resources that are available from each state.
NAMI Partner Programs
NAMI partner programs like Military OneSource and Make the Connection provide much-needed help for veterans and for those who treat them and their families.
Make the Connection, the U.S. Government’s resource guide for veterans.
Mental health is just as important for military and family readiness as physical fitness. While Military OneSource does not provide health care services, it does point members of the military family to the resources available to help.
