CRISIS: Our Veterans, mental health & the wounds we cannot see | psychology recovery & military
Veteran’s Day is tomorrow; I wanted to take some time to talk about mental health and the issues that plague them. We all know that PTSD is an issue for all our veteran’s but what about homelessness, addiction, and suicide. The most staggering statistic I found is that 20 veterans commit suicide each and every day. That needs to change!
Today I talk about how important it is that our veterans keep in touch with other veterans so that they have a place to talk to someone who better understands what they have gone through. It is also SO important that those who are close to our veterans when they come back to also get into therapy! That way you have a place to talk about all of your struggles and worries. There are also groups for our veterans and for their loved ones. Coming back from war and trying to get back into civilian life can be incredibly hard and many isolate. So please reach out and get the support that you need and deserve.
Thank you to all of our men and women who have served, and who have given their all to keep us safe and sound. Happy Veteran’s Day!
