Mental Health Counseling

Veteran’s Mental Health Counseling

Self-care is important, especially your mental health. That is why CampV and the Andrews Center have established a partnership to help bring mental health services to the Veteran community, which includes active military, Veterans, Veteran family members and significant others (anyone who is affected by the Veteran’s military service). Reservists and National Guard are included. Services are rendered regardless of your financial situation. Once you are screened and registered through the Andrews Center process, our campus counselor will call to schedule an appointment. Currently, due to the current COVID 19 pandemic, sessions are via video or telephone only; this will change when vaccinations become available and/or numbers of cases are reduced. You can then have the option to meet with the counselor face-to-face on our campus in the newly renovated CampV resource center. Individual, couples and family counseling are available.

In addition, there are other Veterans Services including the recreation center here on the CampV campus and a peer support coordinator. Andrews Center has been recently accredited as a Certified Behavioral Health Clinic, which recognizes the clinic as a top healthcare provider in the state. Andrews Center offers many additional services at cost. For a full listing, please visit their website at andrewscenter.com. They are a Tri-West provider and take most insurance or can determine a sliding fee scale.

Not sure where to start? Who to talk to? Not sure if counseling is the right thing for you? That is ok, we are here to help. Stop in and talk to one of our Veteran advocates today about the process. Here at CampV we understand that asking for help isn’t easy and often comes too late. We are a Veteran focused organization that is staffed primarily by Veterans and military family members. Even if formal counselling isn’t for you, you can still stop by and have a cup of coffee and network with other Veterans and their families with a fellow Veteran that understands what you are going through.

While on campus, check out one of our peer driven support groups and join them for the camaraderie through fun activities. This approach is for optimum mental health through activities and companionship. You are welcome to join us and participate at your comfort level.

As always if you are having a mental health crisis or are thinking of hurting yourself or others please call 911, the Veterans crisis line at 1-800-273-8255, or go to your local emergency department.

Remember, the world is better with you in it!
