A quantitative survey study to understand how critical factors such as quality of life, perceived stigma, and perceived barriers to care influence utilization of health care services. Results identified the importance of physical quality of life and perceived stigma on student veterans’ use of mental health services. Research on what drives mental health usage is a step toward destigmatizing the use of mental health services and improving available veteran campus resources.
