About Vet to Vet is an independent provider partnership program that utilizes peer-counseling to help Veterans in recovery. They are administered by Veterans who themselves have been consumers of VA mental-health services. They are a group of Veterans who promote awareness by developing activities that connect Veterans with the VA Veteran-based groups and the community. They provide a safe and supportive place for Veterans to share memories, challenges, and experiences with others—who understand from a personal perspective. No one better understands than those who have lived and continue to live with these experiences.
