The NYC Department of Veterans' Services (DVS) prioritizes the physical and mental health of NYC's veteran community. DVS connects veterans to the services they need to meet their unique health challenges and help manage chronic illnesses, disabilities, injuries, and mental health challenges. If you are a friend or family member worried that a veteran you love may be considering suicide, visit Worried About a Veteran (WAV) for first-hand accounts from peers, suicide-prevention tools, and educational resources.
