All students who are serving in the military or who have served in the military are welcome to attend the Vet to Vet peer support group meetings.
Vet to Vet was originally started by veterans with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
As facilitators were being trained we realized that the groups could help with problems other than PTSD. Some of these problems are unique to veterans and it may be difficult to discuss them with others, especially with people who have not experienced the same kind of events.
Vet to Vet is unique in that no social workers or doctors attend the veteran-run meetings. Vet to Vet is endorsed by the Veterans Administration, but is not part of the VA.
The advantage of peer support, such as the Vet-To-Vet program, has been shown to be a valuable part of the learning and healing process.
Meetings are normally overseen by two Vet-To-Vet peer facilitators who have been mentored and trained by caring veterans just like themselves who have received peer support group training in VA approved seminars.
