Military Veteran Peer Network

MVPN Peer Service Coordinator Map


No one wades a stream without getting wet and no one comes back from war unchanged.  This is a toughening process for some people – a self-awareness generation engine.  The efforts of our troops may produce internal struggles, but those efforts also produce tested, accomplished people.

Sometimes, people need a hand in slowing the internal disquiet and conflict that combat, deployment, military sexual trauma, or other abnormal situations produce.  No one is better prepared to speak with a Veteran about her experiences than another Veteran, a peer.

With the peer-to-peer network, veterans go through a training course that teaches them how to facilitate groups of veterans. Once trained, they are tasked with going out into their local communities and creating peer groups. Because members of the group set the rules, no two peer groups are the same.

Use the map and tabs below to find MVPN resources near you. The "Coordinator List" tab is a list of MVPN coordinators who can put you in touch with trained peers in your area. The "Field Clinicians" tab is a list of trained military-informed professional mental health experts.
