A new outstation at the Carroll County Youth Service Bureau has recently been opened by the BaltimoreVetCenter. The outstation will provide counseling services to veterans and their families.
Located in Westminster, Maryland, the bureau is host to the resource center in order to help inform and promote veterans benefits to former servicemembers, according to local news provider the Advocate of Westminster and Finksburg. The outstation provides counseling services available through the VA which include individual and group counseling, military-related sexual trauma counseling, and bereavement counseling for families that have family members who have died during active duty.
Education programs like the Post Deployment Health Reassessment Program are also available at the outstation. Additionally, servicemembers can get more information about assistance with employment, substance abuse and other aid provided through veterans benefits, the news source reported.
Joyce Agatone, a clinic therapist who works at the center, told the news source, “It was perfect timing.” Agatone went on to say, “We were already interested in building this sort of family service, and when we started to talk to [the vet center] we realized that they had very much an interest in serving the veterans and military personnel here, needed the space, and that it could become a very good partnership.”
The VA provides a variety of benefits for former servicemembers. Veterans benefits are in place to help improve the lives of military personnel when they return from active duty and become members of their civilian communities.
