20 New Mobile Vet Centers Expand Access to Counseling Services for Veterans

On Wednesday, January 4, 20 new Mobile Vet Centers (MVCs) left the Farber Specialty Vehicles facility in Columbus, Ohio to travel to their new destinations across the country in order to help bring remote counseling services to veterans and their families in underserved areas.

The vehicles will be established in the following cities:

  • Atlanta, Ga.;
  • Baltimore, Md.;
  • Birmingham, Ala.;
  • Cedar Rapids, Iowa;
  • Evanston, Ill.;
  • Green Bay, Wis.;
  • Greensboro, N.C.;
  • Indianapolis, Ind.;
  • Jackson, Miss.;
  • Kansas City, Mo.;
  • Lawton, Okla.;
  • Lakewood, N.J.;
  • Nashville, Tenn.;
  • Ponce, Puerto Rico;
  • Pontiac, Mich.;
  • Reno, Nev.;
  • San Diego, Calif.;
  • Stark County, Ohio;
  • Washington County, Utah; and
  • Western Oahu, Hawaii.

Each MVC is equipped with a private counseling area and features equipment to facilitate video counseling sessions with remote professionals. The 50 MVCs already in operation have been able to bring mental health and family counseling to veterans and their families in areas that are either too far from a VA facility or are experiencing a heavy burden of cases.

The expanded access to veteran’s mental health services hopes to help improve the care and support of disabled veterans and help families cope with the stresses of returning to civilian life.
