Military Sexual Trauma Counseling

Creating Pathways to Health VA Services for Military Sexual Trauma Survivors

VA has special services available to assist Veterans who have experienced Military Sexual Trauma (MST). These services can be provided in an inpatient setting for more intensive care or in outpatient counseling sessions and treatment. For more information on mental healthcare at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center, visit our Behavioral health page 

To help Veterans recover from military sexual trauma, VA provides free confidential counseling and treatment for mental and physical health related to experiences of MST. You do not need to have a service-connected disability. In fact, you may be able to receive this benefit even if you are not eligible for other VA care. You do not need to have reported the incidents when they happened or have other documentation that they occurred.

Cincinnati VA Medical Center has a designated MST Program Coordinator who serves as a contact person for MST-related issues. This person is your advocate and can help you find and access VA services and programs, state and federal benefits and community resources. Vet Centers also have specially trained sexual trauma counselors. You are encouraged to ask to meet with a health care provider of the same or opposite sex if it would make you feel more comfortable.

More information on violence and sexual abuse is available from the National Center for PTSD.
