Tennessee Tech University's Counseling Center is hosting the Veteran's Administration Mobile Vet Center on campus all day this Thursday beside the Roaden University Center.

The Mobile Vet Center will be offering its services to both students and members of the community experiencing readjustment problems.

"The TTU Counseling Center is excited to offer these services to our students," Christina Mick, assistant director/clinical services, said. "We want our students to know that TTU is a veteran-friendly university."

The Vet Center was established by Congress in 1979 out of recognition that a significant number of veterans were experiencing readjustment problems. Services provided by the Vet Center include individual readjustment counseling, group meetings and counseling, military sexual trauma counseling, bereavement counseling, marital and family counseling, employment counseling and guidance, benefits assistance and referral, substance abuse information and referral, community education, and liaison with community agencies.

The Vet Center holds all information disclosed in the counseling process as strictly confidential. No information is communicated to any person or agency without written consent except in a circumstance necessary to avert a crisis.

The TTU Counseling Center also offers a support group for student veterans who are adjusting to campus life. The specific objective of the veterans support group is to provide support and assist participants with adjustment to higher education and readjustment issues following a military deployment.
