MST-related services are available at every Tomah VA outpatient clinic and MST-related counseling is also available through community-based Vet Centers. Services are designed to meet Veterans where they are at in their recovery, whether that is focusing on strategies for coping with challenging emotions and memories or, for Veterans who are ready, actually talking about their MST experiences in depth.

For more information, Veterans can speak with their existing Tomah VA health care provider, contact the MST Coordinator at the Tomah VA, or contact their local Vet Center.

The PACT Act is a new law that expands VA health care and benefits for Veterans exposed to burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic substances. The PACT Act adds to the list of health conditions that we assume (or "presume") are caused by exposure to these substances. This law helps us provide generations of Veterans—and their survivors — with the care and benefits they've earned and deserve.

Every Veteran enrolled in VA healthcare will be offered a free and voluntary Toxic Exposure Screening at least every 5 years. As part of caring for your health, we will ask if you think you were exposed to any of the following hazards while serving in the Armed Forces:

  • Airborne Hazards/Open Burn Pit
  • Gulf War
  • Agent Orange
  • Ionizing Radiation
  • Contaminated water at Camp Lejeune
  • Other exposures to include Per and poly fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), Depleted Uranium

We will then give you information about benefits/claims, registry questions, and assist with any clinical resources you may need. VA will not rest until every Veteran gets the toxic exposure-related care and benefits they deserve. To apply today or learn more about what the PACT Act could mean for you, visit VA.GOV/PACT or call 1-800-MYVA411 or reach out to the local connections below.
