The Department of Veterans Affairs' Mobile Vet Center is coming to Picayune.
The Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care System announced Tuesday that the VA will offer free readjustment counseling services to interested veterans and active duty service members at the Walmart in Picayune on Wednesday.
The store is located at 235 Frontage Road and the event is set to run from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The event is part of the VA's ongoing outreach campaign.
Services offered will include:
-Individual, group and family readjustment counseling to assist active duty service members in making a successful transition from combat to garrison or civilian live.
-Post-traumatic stress disorder treatment and help with other related problems that affect functioning within the family, work, school or other areas of everyday life.

Service members will be required to provide documentation by their third visit indicating they have served in a combat or war zone to continue counseling. A copy of one of the following documents will meet this requirement: deployment demobilization order, enlisted record brief, officer record brief or an award citation indicating service member served in a combat zone.
Services are also available to family members of active duty combat service members, as well as any combat veteran.
