The Department of Veterans Affairs Mobile Vet Center (MVC) will visit the Lake Land College campus on Wednesday, Feb. 12 from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. It will be located just outside of the Luther Student Center’s west entrance.
The MVC is the Department of Veterans Affairs latest effort to reach the underserved veteran populations of rural America. Its mission is to help veterans readjust to civilian life. It does this by helping veterans identify problems and then offering individual, family, and group counseling for a host of issues including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), military sexual trauma, and bereavement.
Services offered through the Mobile Vet Center include: readjustment counseling, posttraumatic stress disorder counseling, alcohol and other drug addiction counseling and referral, job counseling and referral, benefits counseling and referral, individual, couples/family and group counseling, and bereavement counseling.
Vet Centers provide readjustment counseling and outreach services to all veterans who served in any combat zone. Services are also available for their family members for military related issues. Veterans have earned these benefits through their service and all are provided at no cost to the veteran or family.
All matters discussed with clients and staff are treated with the strictest of confidentiality. Any information released is based upon legal regulations. Release of information practices and client rights are explained to Vet Center clientele to insure clientele are fully informed.
