Vets Prevail Launches New On-Demand Chat Program

March 14, 2016

There are times when it just helps to talk to a fellow Veteran.  You don’t have to be in crisis, you might just be stressed out or could use some help finding the right resource, or might just be bored and want to chat with a like-minded Vet.  Regardless of what’s on your mind, there are fellow Veterans who are trained and ready to help.

If you are a Vet, click here to chat with someone immediately

With Vets Prevail’s newest program, there are Veteran Peer Specialists standing by to chat about whatever is on your mind.  These Peers come from different military backgrounds and experiences, but they have all been certified as Peer Specialists and are here to help.  You can either get connected directly to someone, or browse through the list of available Peers and find one from the same branch.  Chatting with fellow Veterans has been a main part of our program since the national launch in 2011, but after having over 40,000 Veterans try out Vets Prevail, we listened to their feedback and are pushing ahead with this dedicated chat initiative.

If you’re interested, the chats are free and completely anonymous.  To get started, just follow these instructions:

  1. Click here, select the “Chat With Peers” button and you’ll be chatting live with another Veteran in minutes
  2. After the chat, you can stick around and create an account so you’ll be able to get back in with no problems next time you’re ready to talk
  3. If you’re interested in trying our program, or becoming a Peer yourself, just follow the on screen directions after your chat or ask the Veteran you speak with for more information

Just because we hang up the uniform doesn’t mean we stop supporting each other. Click here to start chatting with a fellow Veteran and see what all Vets Prevail has to offer.
