Mental Health Resources for Military & Veterans
Not every wound leaves a scar.
The strain of separation, the stress of combat and the trauma of loss can have debilitating consequences for service members and military veterans - and their families - long after coming home. The symptoms of psychological health issues, just like physical ailments, vary, as do the options for treatment.
And, like any other injury or medical condition, mental health issues have no bearing on the strength or character of the person who experiences the symptoms.
Prevention and early intervention are keys to achieving and maintaining good mental health.
A guide that provides comprehensive information on substance abuse statistics among veterans, governmental programs that offers treatment, and steps that veterans can take to get the help that they need.
