soldier military usaVeterans, family members of veterans and friends of veterans who may have PTS issues or may need to find out if they do, the list below is a few of the resources available to you. Do not think you do not need assistance if you have served and experience the complications associated with PTS. I have lived with PTS for nearly fifty years and you cannot be cured, but treatment can help.  If you have had anger management problems, heightened awareness, substance abuse problems, domestic issues, depression, nightmares, sleep disorders, survivor’s guilt and so many other issues associated with PTS, ask for help.

If you have thoughts of hurting yourself or others, call 911 or go to an emergency room immediately.

20% of the soldiers who have been deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq and those deployed in the last six years face PTS issues. 30% of Vietnam veterans experience PTS every day. 2 out of 3 veterans that suffer from PTS go untreated. We must and will change that. If you are a veteran having transition problems or PTS issues, seek help.  If you are a family member or a true friend of a veteran having issues encourage them to seek help. You may save a life.
