Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2021

VA’s annual Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign lets all Veterans know that if they have experienced MST, a community of support is available to help them in their recovery. If you experienced MST, you are not alone. This year the Tomah VAMC features an awareness flag display to represent the 779 MST survivors (349 men, 430 women) who sought care at the Tomah VAMC this past year.

VA uses the term “military sexual trauma” (MST) to refer to sexual assault or sexual harassment that occurs during military service. MST can include:

  • Being pressured or coerced into sexual activities, such as with threats of negative treatment for refusing to cooperate or with promises of better treatment in exchange for sex
  • Sexual contact without your consent, such as when you were asleep or intoxicated
  • Being physically forced to have sex
  • Being touched in a sexual way that made you uncomfortable, including during “hazing”
  • Being subjected to comments about your body or sexual activities
  • Receiving threatening and unwanted sexual advances

Anyone in the military can experience sexual trauma, regardless of their branch of service, age, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. MST can occur at any time or place during military service, whether on or off duty or on or off base. The perpetrator(s) may or may not be someone known to the survivor and may be a fellow Service member or a civilian. 

Veterans react to MST in many different ways. Some people may experience long-term effects on their mental and physical health, work, relationships, or everyday life — sometimes many years after the experience. If you have experienced MST, regardless of where you are in your recovery, please know that you are not alone, that healing is possible, and that MST is never your fault. At the Tomah VA we believe you — and we believe in you.

VA provides free treatment to Veterans for any physical or mental health condition related to MST.  Eligibility for MST-related care is expansive, and Veterans may be eligible for MST-related care even if they are not eligible for other VA services. Neither service connection (VA disability compensation) nor documentation of the MST experience is required to get this care.  There are no time limits on eligibility for this care. Veterans can seek treatment even many years after discharge from the military. Former Service members who received an other than honorable discharge and current Service members also may receive certain MST-related services from VA.

If you want to learn more, call the Military Sexual Trauma Coordinator at the Tomah VAMC: Sarah Dahl, PhD., 608-372-3971, Ext 66426, or speak to your Tomah VAMC provider if you are already in care. You can also learn more at www.mentalhealth.va.gov/msthome. Learn more »
