VA provides free care to Veterans who have experienced sexual assault or sexual harassment while in the military.

Veterans do not need to have a VA disability rating (be “service connected”) and may be able to receive this care even if they are not eligible for other VA care.

VA Long Beach offers a range of services available to meet Veterans where they are at in their recovery:

  • Mental health counseling
  • Sexual trauma counseling
  • Substance abuse treatment
  • Psychological support groups
  • Physical health care
