Strength and independence on the battlefield whether by land, air or sea is a hallmark of military service that can turn into an obstacle when seeking help at home. The Department of Veterans Affairs has developed a program to help a veteran’s support system at home guide their loved one to the help they need.
Coaching Into Care works with family members or friends who become aware of their Veteran’s post-deployment difficulties—and supports their efforts to find help for the Veteran.
How Coaching Into Care Helps
Coaching Into Care offers Veterans and their loved ones these services:
- Encouragement and information about getting an evaluation and services
- “Coaching” with family members or friends to help motivate Veteran for evaluation/consultation
- Referrals to services for veterans and their family members
