Each VA Medical Center has a Veterans Justice Outreach specialist. VJO's help justice-involved veterans suffering from PTSD or other mental health issues avoid unnecessary punishment and jail time. VJO's help Veterans get access to VHA mental health and other VA services and benefits. They work with public defenders, providers, community and veterans organizations, the courts, and others to find ways to help justice-involved veterans rather than punish them. Find VJO Contacts at your local VA Medical Center.
