Vet to Vet meetings announced

Vet to Vet is a support group aimed at helping veterans, especially younger veterans, reintegrate themselves into society.

Vet to Vet was started in 2001 by Moe Armstrong, Vinfen and the VA VISN 1 MIERC. It recognizes the inherent ability for people to recover, and to help each other recover.

Vet to Vet groups are supportive, present and future oriented, safe places to learn coping skills. They are used as an add-on to VA counseling or can be used as stand alone support system. It is a place where veterans can help other veterans cope and increase socialization.

Vet to Vet is a confidential peer support group, where there will be discussions of formal and informal topics.

Meetings will be Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. at 79 W. Market St., Wabash.  The first meeting will be Wednesday, March 13.

There is no charge to be a part of these meetings and the meetings will last approximately one hour.

You may also call the Veteran’s Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 ext. 1 for help or you can have a confidential chat at VeteransCrisisLine.net or by sending a text to 838255.
