Does VHA provide help to families dealing with “coming home” issues?

VA has developed a telephone service called Coaching into Care,  which provides assistance to family members and friends trying to encourage their Veteran to seek health care for possible readjustment and mental health issues.  The service is available toll-free at 1-888-823-7458, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday, and online at http://www.mirecc.va.gov/coaching/.  

If a Veteran is experiencing an acute crisis, callers should contact the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 for immediate help.  Check with VHA for possibly more information.
