Veteran mental health is both a complex and difficult topic, nowadays. While mental illnesses are a contentious topic among the population, at-large, it can be even more so regarding veterans. This has a tremendous impact on how veterans cope with serious conditions, like Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder (PTSD), and whether they receive disability benefits through the Veteran Affairs office.
As you might expect, there are plenty of myths and misunderstandings surrounding this topic, including some that veterans themselves mistakenly believe. We’d like to identify some of those, so that you can help our vets overcome these debilitating roadblocks and misperceptions.
