The Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN)

Whether it is helping frightened spouses and children during times of deployment or assisting veterans with reintegration into civilian life, services to individuals in the military community must be provided through an empathetic lens. Direct Peer Services, as provided by our MVPN Program, have proven effective in assisting members of the SMVF community (service members, veterans, and their families) by offering one-to-one peer support, referrals for mental health and wellness, mentoring and support during Veteran Treatment Court, and the provision of peer support groups in a welcoming and understanding environment.

Who is a Peer?

  • A veteran with a shared experience who is willing to help others
  • A veteran who suffered hardship as a result of their military experience, past trauma or mental health issue but has learned successful coping strategies
  • A veteran who wants to help others on their recovery journey
  • A veteran who is willing to listen
