Together, We Can Provide Mental Health Services to Veterans
The signature wounds of recent wars are often invisible. Their impact, however, has become increasingly obvious in the public eye but with effort, we can help bring awareness to the issues in which play a significant role to our Veterans and their families.
More than 300,000 Americans have been impacted by PTSD and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) as a result of their service to this country. Similar numbers have been estimated for those exhibiting signs of post-deployment depression.
These invisible wounds impact the military service member’s and veteran’s ability to function, can damage relationships with family and friends, complicate perceptions of pain and delay the healing of physical wounds, many times resulting in suicide.
Families are coping with veterans’ mental illness, increased drug and alcohol dependence, higher rates of violence including homicide, child abuse and neglect, and high risk behaviors, which have resulted in increased number of automobile accidents and drug overdoses, divorce and homelessness, and clinical levels of stress among the children of Veterans.
The costs of war extend beyond the Veterans themselves to the communities in which they live.
