Who is VVCS?

VVCS provides free confidential counselling and group program services to support the mental health and wellbeing of the Australian veteran and ex-service community and their families, irrespective of which theatre they served in.

The VVCS Legacy

The Vietnam War was a difficult chapter in Australia’s history. For those who served, the experience forged strong bonds and a commitment to look out for each other. This deep sense of mateship, led Vietnam veterans to lobby for a specialised counselling and support service for veterans and their families. In 1982, the Australian Government established the Vietnam Veterans Counselling Service (VVCS). Access to VVCS has since been extended to veterans of all conflicts, their families, and other members of the ADF and ex-service community. Reflecting this, the service was renamed, VVCS – Veterans and Veterans Families Counselling Service in 2007. VVCS is the legacy of Australia’s Vietnam veterans. They have ensured that future generations of serving men and women will have access to specialised mental health and wellbeing support.

Why the FAAAA Supports VVCS

VVCS is an important service available to both Serving and ex-Service veterans. The FAAA will continue to provide links and information to assist members who may wish to contact it.
