Military Sexual Trauma Treatment

Military Sexual Trauma

Both women and men can experience military sexual trauma (MST), and for some, the experiences can affect their health even many years later. Because MST is an  experience, not a diagnosis, Veterans who experienced MST can benefit from the range of treatment options VA has available to treat conditions commonly associated with MST, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, substance abuse, and others. VA also has MST-specific outpatient, inpatient, and residential services available to assist Veterans in their recovery. It’s important to know that VA provides all treatment for MST-related mental and physical health conditions free of charge. A service-connected disability rating is not required, and Veterans may be able to receive MST-related care even if not eligible for other VA services.  Veterans need not have reported the incident or have other documentation that it occurred.
