Hamilton Center’s MVP program appreciates the dedication and sacrifice required of our current military and our veteran families. The spouses and children of our warriors make up the backbone of our military and ensure that our service members can concentrate on their mission. Once the mission is completed and the veteran returns home, it is the family who helps put the pieces back together.
Military and veteran family members face specific and very unique challenges and their mental health needs often take a back seat to their other responsibilities.
Whether a veteran has recently returned or has been home for years, returning service members frequently suffer in silence and are reluctant to reach out for help.

By learning healthy coping methods, families may reach a new level of understanding which can help calm a disrupted household. MVP offers mental health and emotional support for issues relating to:
