I am an American Veteran. Whom do I contact for help with PTSD?

You can contact your local VA hospital or Vet Center.

VA also has Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOC's) around each state. Many of these clinics offer mental health services.

To find a VA medical center, CBOC, or Vet Center near you, use the online VHA Facilities Locator.


Other resources include:
*The VA Health Benefits Service Center toll free at 1-877-222-VETS (1-877-222-8387)
*The Vet Centers' national number 1-800-905-4675
*The VA Office of Mental Health Returning Veterans page
*The VA Returning Service Members (OEF/OIF) page
*My HealtheVet



As an American Veteran, how do I file a claim for disability due to PTSD?
You must file a formal request ("claim") using forms provided by the VA's Veterans Benefits Administration. After the forms are submitted, you must complete interviews. Information about the application process can be obtained from Benefits Officers at any VA medical center, outpatient clinic, or regional office.

The process of applying for a VA disability for PTSD can be long and stressful. Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) provide "Service Officers" at no cost to help Veterans and family members with VA disability claims.

For more information, please see our fact sheet Help for Veterans with PTSD.
