Organizations Providing Assistance
The widespread use of asbestos in all military branches puts veterans at an increased health risk specifically for the development of pleural mesothelioma cancer. There are several types of treatment for mesothelioma, and The Mesothelioma Center provides free personalized support and information to affected veterans, connecting them with resources such as medical professionals, establishing a support network, and assisting in locating various types of mesothelioma treatment centers and resources.
GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.
Provide outreach, education, networking, and referral services addressing employment, benefits, health, and housing. We also provide peer and moral support to military Veterans and other eligible persons.
Offer confidential help for Veterans, service members, and their families at no cost in a non-medical setting. Our services include counseling for needs such as depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and the psychological effects of military sexual trauma (MST). We can also connect you with more support in VA and your community.
