SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County will begin hosting a mobile counseling center for combat veterans on Tuesday, Feb. 19, in the east parking lot of the Summit County Medical Office Building, 360 Peak One Dr., Frisco. The Mobile Vet Center will be available one day each month.

The Mobile Vet Center program was established to provide Vet Center services and outreach to eligible veterans, active duty service members and their families. Vet Centers are community-based counseling centers that provide a wide range of social and psychological services, including professional readjustment counseling. Readjustment counseling is offered to make a successful transition from military to civilian life or after a traumatic event experienced in the military.

“This is a new service for our local veterans that we're proud and excited to be able to offer,” said Janet Wolfson, Economic Security Programs Manager for Summit County Human Services. "This is a great opportunity to access free counseling and information resources right here in Summit County."

Readjustment counseling encompasses a wide range of services, including sexual trauma counseling and referral, individual counseling and group counseling. It includes screening, treatment and referral for a variety of conditions, such as PTSD, depression, substance use disorders, sleep disorders and traumatic brain injuries. The Mobile Vet Center will provide preliminary screening and offer direct contact with a counselor through a secure video service.

“Tele-health can be much easier, as it allows veterans to express what is going on while maintaining their personal space," Veterans Service Officer Duane Daily said. "It’s very successful and lets veterans open up in a safe, comfortable atmosphere.”

The Mobile Vet Center is a free service. Veterans who are interested in accessing the service should bring their DD214 discharge form. Summit County Human Services will assist veterans in obtaining their DD214 if they don't have it.

For more information about the Mobile Vet Center, or any other veterans' services, call Summit County Human Services at 970-668-9716.

About the Veterans Service Office: The Summit County Veterans Service Office provides veterans with information and assistance related to VA health care benefits, copies of military discharges, home loan eligibility certificates, service-connected disability compensation, VA pensions and other needs.
