PTSD in War Veterans
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a leading cause of death among veterans. In 2021, four times as many veterans died from suicide than in combat due to post traumatic stress disorder and the effects it has. Mental health is majorly stigmatized within the veteran community and often proper treatment isn’t taken advantage of. In order for changes to be made the government must require necessary treatment for veterans, family and friends need to understand the true implications of PTSD and offer the correct support, and veterans must deny the stigma and accept mental challenges.
