Many military veterans experience a group of mental health conditions that tend to affect military personnel and their families disproportionately. These conditions may include posttraumatic stress (PTSD), depression, anxiety, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and substance abuse, among many other issues. Due to the traumatic environment in which active military combatants serve, veterans are at a significantly higher risk of developing these health concerns. These concerns can often be addressed and resolved with the support of mental health professionals.
