Military Sexual Trauma (MST) is sexual assault or sexual harassment that occurred during military service. VA offers free, confidential counseling and treatment to Veterans for mental and physical health conditions related to experiences of MST. You do not need to have a VA disability rating (be “service connected”) and may be able to receive services even if you are not eligible for other VA care. You do not need to have reported the incident when it happened or have other documentation that it occurred. Every VA health care system has an MST Coordinator who can help you access VA services and programs.
