This one is for those military families in the Bronx, N.Y. area: access to a free reintegration counseling program and study fittingly called the Veterans Study Program at the James J. Peters Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC):
We are currently enrolling veterans from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF). You may qualify for this study if you are a veteran who is having difficulty adjusting to daily life as a result of the stressful experiences during combat.

More details on this VAMC program:
Study participants are provided with counseling at no cost, and/or may join the clinic at the James J. Peters VAMC.
If you have readjustment needs as a result of combat-related stress, you have the opportunity to seek assistance, as well as to help many others who are going through a similar experience. Research is important for the understanding of combat-related stress, so that we may learn the best ways to support people who are dealing with these issues.
What Is Involved?
Study participants are randomly placed into one of two counseling conditions, both involving weekly appointments with a clinical psychologist for 10 weeks. The first counseling condition is Prolonged Exposure (PE). In therapy, participants will speak about and confront their trauma with the psychologist. This is a short, intense therapy that has been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of stress. The second condition is Minimal Attention (MA), or phone counseling. In the MA condition, the clinical psychologist provides support and encourages coping skills through weekly phone calls.
