Mental Health Appointment & Prescription Cost Assistance

One of the biggest gaps in mental health is the lack of funding to seek mental health services. So at RFVSP we cover the cost so that our heroes and their families can get the best mental health care possible. You will be able to see your own psychiatrist or therapist, or we can help you in seeking on local to you. We will cover these appointments so that you do not have to worry about the cost.
Our prescription assistance allows us to cover the cost so that medications are not something that you have to miss due to cost.
