The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) serves millions of veterans seeking mental health care. The most frequent mental health diagnoses in veterans receiving mental health treatment through the VA include post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, adjustment disorder, anxiety disorder, substance use disorder, and alcohol use disorder. The resources provided by the VA are designed with an understanding of the unique and complex experiences that have shaped American veterans. It is important for private practitioners to understand what services the VA can offer for mental health treatment and how working with the VA system can be beneficial for veterans seeking mental health care. This chapter provides clinicians with the tools necessary for understanding VA health care in order to facilitate access to VA resources when necessary.
