Veterans Services Officer Doug Breen and Bob Porter
Middlesex County’s Veterans Service Program works with federal, state, local and non-profit groups to provide different forms of aid to our veterans.

The Office of Veterans Services is a component program of the Division of Social Work Services.
The Veterans Services Coordinator provides assistance, information and referrals regarding eligibility for services and service related benefits to military veterans and their family.
 
The Veterans Services Office maintains close liaison with the various veterans' organizations within the county and provides support for veteran events through the Middlesex County Veterans Advisory Council (MCVAC) under the auspices of the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

VETERAN'S MENTAL HEALTH HELPLINE
A mental health helpline has been established by the NJ Division of Mental Health Services for veterans returning from duty. The toll-free number provides immediate assistance to veterans suffering from emotional or psychological distress, as well as those having difficulty re-assimilating into civilian life after their mobilization for active duty service ends.
 
You may reach the helpline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by dialing:
1-866-VETS-NJ4U (1-866-838-7654)
 
The helpline, coordinated by the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ/University Behavioral HealthCare, features peer counseling, clinical assessment, and assistance to family members. The helpline provides New Jersey veterans and their families’ access to a comprehensive Mental Health Provider Network of mental health professionals specializing in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other veterans' issues. All services are free and confidential.
