Mental Health

If you qualify for VA health care, you can get high-quality mental health services as part of your benefits. You may also be able to get care for certain mental health problems even if you don't have VA health care.

About the Program

The mental health service at VAMC Fayetteville provides consultation, evaluation, and treatment for a variety of issues that can impact emotional well-being.

The Fayetteville VA Health Care Center (HCC) offers same day access to mental health care for Veterans who are enrolled in Primary Care through their Primary Care/Mental Health Integration Team ( PC MHI).   PC MHI receives referrals from the Primary Care Team through a same day warm-hand off and/or follow-up referral for Veterans with mental health concerns. PCMHI offers short term solution focused therapy, groups and education for veterans in the primary care setting.  PC MHI also serves as  the gateway to Mental Health Service Line for Veterans who are not currently receiving any mental health services at the FVAMC Main Campus. Those Veterans requiring enhanced mental health care will receive treatment at the  FVAMC Main Campus on Ramsey Street.
