There are military members and Veterans who face difficult life events and challenges that at times can become overwhelming.
The South Carolina Department of Veterans' Affairs (SCDVA) has teamed up with the South Carolina Department of Mental Health (SCDMH) and the South Carolina Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services (DAODAS) to connect military members with resources that can provide assistance getting through a mental health crisis.
SCDMH and DAODAS are providing the Interactive Screening Program - a safe and easy service that allows you to anonymously take a Self-Check Questionnaire and connect with a professional counselor in the State of South Carolina who can provide guidance, support, and resources to help connect you with mental health and addiction services.
