Mental Health Resources for Service Members & 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.
You are not alone! There is help available:

Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD)
While combat stress may fade after returning home, the symptoms often continue for weeks and months, suggesting post-traumatic stress (PTSD).
Symptoms of PTSD include trouble sleeping, jumpiness, nightmares, memory loss and mood swings. Friends and family of veterans may notice increased drinking or drug use, recklessness or angry outbursts.
