Veterans

The Counseling Center welcomes our veteran students. We encourage you to come in with any concern and we will do our best to assist you.

  • While many veterans return from deployment without challenges related to combat, every combat veteran takes home some degree of combat stress, including sleep difficulties, frustration, anger, and/or re-adjustment to civilian life.
  • Combat veterans who return home after deployment with adjustment challenges may be having normal reactions to an abnormal experience (war).
  • Counseling can be helpful by being action oriented, focused on solutions, and time limited.

Please visit FSU’s Office of Veteran Services for comprehensive services and support.
